Nominating this photo for "Best of Panoramio".

Dear Margaret,

Thank you for the nomination! I am very pleased with this image for I felt I succeeded in capturing a mood.

That I can share with you like this, making instant exchanges between Australia and Poland it special. I have some Polish ancestors who came to Australia in 1866. How could they have ever imagined what we are able to do now... they simply had to leave it all behind.

Warm regards,

Write something more about my Polish ancestors

Great job again!

Dear Piotr,

Thank you for your visit and affirming comments on the images you highlighted. Your compositions and use of light are great also.

Warm regards,

Dear Małgorzata,

In regard to my Polish ancestors, we wished we knew more about their origins.

They migrated through Hamburg to Maryborough, Queensland in 1866. But the information we have to rely on is what was given, sometimes orally, to English speaking officials here. Because of the different languages as well as accents, what we have to use is limited or unreliable.

Ludwig Judas b8.8.1819 migrated with 4 daughters from his first marriage, and with his later wife and their 2 children.

The various records here indicate that:

Ludwig Judas was possibly born in Obornik;

Wilhelmine was born c.1844 in Prussia;

Ottilie was born c.1847 in Oborniki, Posen;

Caroline was born c1851 in "Oboning" (I assume that means Oborniki);

Julianne was born 1853 in Granzow(?).

His wife, Wilhelmine Wendlandt/Vindlant/Vindlandt was born 14 Mar 1841. They came with their 2 children: Helena Augustina Paulina (born Aug 21, 1863 in Oborniki, Posen) and Johan Cappler (born Nov 15 1865 in Obornik, Posen).

Ottilie is my ancestor (Great Grandmother).

All the spellings and mis-spellings used above are as they appear in hoistorical records here. If you know any way that I may confirm any of this at the Poland end, I would be most grateful for your advice.

Thanks for your interest and inquiry, Margaret.
