The original concept motivating my request for this board was to provide a forum for all persons who trace their ancestry to the former region/Kingdom of Prussia, without regard to specific ethnicity ethnicity, to explore our particular regional perspective. I would certainly expect great benefit to proceed from the presence of Prussian-German, Prussian -Jewish (both German and Yiddish), and Prussian-Polish-descended posters to air their own perspectives, as well as to amplify the influence of posters of Wendish/Sorbian ancestry beyond the limitations usually imposed by the small size of their population.

I must here confess to being at a disadvantage when it comes to specific knowledge of Wendish/Sorbian culture, and I also possess no Wendish ancestry so far as I know.

One thing that I definitely expect is that this remain a forum of reasoned discussion and mutual assistance in the exploration of our ancestral and cultural roots in the light of our shared regional perspective, and that it not degenerate into an inter-ethnic flame-fest in which old grievances are resurrected and perseverated.

Keeping all this in mind, post away!

Here's one site on Wikipedia:

I might advise you not to take too seriously the various names of the various ethnic groups: I know that Wend/Venetii and Sorb/Serbian are obviously related words, but so are the Germanic ethnic terms Swabian and Swede (both from proto-Germanic *swebdi), while today's Swabians and Swedes are certainly two very different peoples.

God bless you!
