Mennonites in Galicia Database

The Galician Family Study Database was derived from the Book "Mennoniten im Kleinpolen" published in 1934 by Peter Bachmann. A sequel (named "Galizien Mennoniten in Wandel der Zeiten") with additional data representing a total of about 7,000 family members was published in 1984 by Arnold Bachmann. This work was transcribed to computer files by T P Miller together with more than 7,000 new entries in 1993. This effort continues with the collaboration of G V Linscheid as new data is uncovered. There are 21,144 family records in this database as of January 2008.
