Treasure Chest Thursday: Familiengeschichte der Gemeinde Görwihl
I finally managed to find Helmut Faller's 2-volume Familiengeschichte der Gemeinde Görwihl (Bad Säckingen : H. Faller, 4th enlarged edition, 1993). The volumes are rare and out of print, and I didn't think I would ever find my own copies. The volumes cover Görwihl and other nearby communities, such as Engelschwand, Hartschwand, Niederwihl, Oberwihl, Rotzingen, Burg, Rüsswihl, Segeten, Strittmatt, and Tiefenstein. My maternal grandmother's mother's side of the family came from this part of Baden. The books include a great deal of information about my family.
