Family book Torschau:
I am planning to make a family book about Torschau. I do not want to make money out of it, just to cover my costs. It will take me some more time to finish my work but in the meantime you can search my data at the Stammbaumdatenbank at Familia Austria. There is a short help available. There are about 11.900 people available now. Nevertheless I need more material to fill my gaps. I appreciate any new material in any form! Of course you will be cited as the author of your source. And of course I am pleased to share what I already have. Contact me at DVHH.
Thank you!
