I am trying to trace the Warkus line in Breslau (Wroclaw). I have traced a distant relative born there in 1801. His name was John Godfried Warkus.
In a book writen by a Professor H. Hensoldt "Zwei Jahr in Ceylon" written in 1879 Professor Hensoldt mentions Mr. Warkus being born in Breslau, Silesia and that in his younger years he had been a servant to a wealthy Cuirassier (mounted cavalry soldier) officer of his regiment. He moved to Ceylon around 1844.
I would appreciate if anyone could point me in the right direction concerning finding information in Wroclaw of the early 1800's?
