Mr. Meinrad Pichler
Dear Mr. Pichler.
Thank you for your response to my inquiry and the recommendation to contact Cornelia Albertani. However before I do, perhaps you can tell me how you came to the conclusion that Feuersteins of Elsass came from Schwarzenberg.
Several years ago, I visited the town of Berg in Elsass and went to Vorarlberg. After I was introduced to the book, Die Vorarlberger Barockbaumeister, I made certain assumptions. I visited a number of towns in and around Bezau, Bizau where, according to records, a Christina Feuerstein married a Barockbaumeister Thumb, who took with him some Feuersteins to Elsass. There was no reference to Schwarzenberg. Therefore, I'm wondering if you could refer me to some documents/books that make the connection to Schwarzenberg.
Thank you for your help.
