The Village of Pommerzig in the former Kreis Züllichau-Schwiebus

In October of 2005 I spent a leisurely week looking around in parts of the former Kreis Züllichau-Schwiebus. After many, many years of being able to do not much more than think about all these places, mainly because of my research into the Thiele (of Hahndorf in South Australia) Family Tree, I was finally there! The weather could not have been better, which gave me the opportunity to look around from early in the morning until late in the evening. I managed to visit all the villages and towns that would have been of importance to the Thiele family, and then some. Also met up with many interesting people. The whole experience has left me with memories that have been indelibly edged into my mind. It has also left me with many hundreds of photos most of which I intend to publish on my web site in one form or another.
For more information about Pommerzig check out the Thiele Family Web Site!

Bethany and Salem Thieles

During the last few days I have added two new sections. The first one is about the Thieles from Bethany in the Barossa Valley in South Australia and the second one covers the Thieles from Salem, also in South Australia.
The genealogical data is still incomplete and the narratives are still being developed further but the web site is starting to look a little bit better all the time. At least, that's my opinin, let me know if you don't agree!
I would very much like to get into contact with descendants from both groups of Thieles to see if they would want to have an input into any further development of this web site.

New Guestbook for Thiele Web Site

The Thiele Web Site now has a new guestbook. I have finally worked up the courage to dump the old one as spammers were getting the better of me with literally hundreds of spam e-mails each day.
The new guestbook has much better security and handles e-mail addresses much more discreetly.
So who is going to be the first one to leave a message?

New Thiele Web Site Now In Place

After some hard work and lots of testing a first-pass Thiele web site has been uploaded ready for use.

Please help me improve this web site by letting me have your constructive comments!

If you have any information, be it photos, stories or family data, that you would like to be included on this web site please let me know.

I intend to update this web site at least once a week, but if required this can be done more often!

New Thiele Family Web Site

After showing a section of the Thiele Family Tree (the Thieles of Hahndorf in South Australia) as a subset of the Janmaat Family web site since 1998, I have decided that the time has come for the Thieles to have their own web site. Please see the link on this page.
