Christian (links) und Norbert Werner bewahren die Tagebücher ihres Großvaters Friedrich Werner, die er während des Ersten Weltkrieges geschrieben hat.

Er war ein großer Mann, respekteinflößend, aber dennoch liebevoll und sehr geschichtsinteressiert. So beschreibt Christian Werner seinen Großvater Friedrich Werner. Der 62-jährige gebürtige Gothaer und sein Bruder Norbert Werner halten die Erinnerungen an ihren Großvater wach, der akribisch Aufzeichnungen zur Familiengeschichte, der Geschichte der Stadt Gotha und der Region, aber auch über seine Teilnahme am Ersten Weltkrieg angefertigt hat. Die Aufzeichnungen über seine Kriegserlebnisse, die er mit zahlreichen Postkarten, Fotos und eigenen Zeichnungen illustriert hat, haben einen Umfang von 480 Seiten. Dazu kommt noch ein umfangreiches Kartenmaterial von den Kriegsschauplätzen. Continue Reading →

On Family Research

by Norbert Werner (Chart IV – IV)

Note: This article was entirely written in German. You will find it in the P. and G. Klopp Story under the heading Stories in German. There you can read about the difficulties of finding the right scope and basis for any genealogical endeavor. Norbert also writes about the potential legal pitfalls that may dampen your enthusiasm for family research. I translated that paragraph and posted it below.

“I want to throw some light on another aspect. In spite of all the fully justified interest in the documentation of family history and in the fortunes or misfortunes of the people’s background one must cautiously and discreetly deal with such information and carefully deliberate as to what is suitable for the ‘general public’ and as to what one should keep to oneself. A close relative, who had dealt with the matter much more thoroughly, had to endure some bitter experiences. To gather information he had written to all family members, who were still alive, a questionnaire and the request for pictures and information. Furthermore he published the pertinent data on the worldwide web. There Mrs. X read that her father had died of disease Y. As far as she was concerned, he had gone too far and threatened to sue, unless he immediately took it off the Internet.
