Dzieje rodu Morysów ze Śląska Cieszyńskiego – from the 18th to the beginning of the 20th century
Series: MONOGRAPHS AND MATERIALS 6 (MONOGRAFIE I MATERIAŁY 6)
Edited by: Michael Morys-Twarowski
The history of the Morys from Cieszyn Silesia from the 18th to the beginning of the 20th century is the result of 21-year long genealogical research. It began with conversations with the oldest relatives, and ended in archival queries in Poland, the Czech Republic and Austria. The biographies of Tomasz Morys (c. 1706-1750) and his 142 descendants to the sixth generation are not just sets of dates but almost everything that the author was able to “squeeze” from the available sources. Simultaneously, this is an untypical historical book, where great historical events remain in the background, while people about whom the researchers usually did not write come to the fore.
The wider audience will certainly be interested in the introduction, which is a kind of guide on how to search for peasant ancestors from Cieszyn Silesia.
