Galician Family Study Mennonites in Galicia Database

Database © copyright 1998 - 2008 by Thomas P. Miller ; all rights reserved

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 continued with the collaboration of G V Linscheid as new data was uncovered. There are 21,144 family records in this database as of January 2008.

The original authors of these databases (T. P. Miller and G. V. Linscheid) are no longer able to make any further additions or changes to these databases and most of the information in them has not changed since 2008.

GGD continues to be interested in adding articles and updates about the Galizien German Mennonites to our web pages.  In addition interested researchers can contact the Mennonite Historical societies in the USA ( and Canada
