Księgi sądowe wiejskie z Chorzowa i Dębu – years 1534-1804
Series: Monographs and Materials 4 (MONOGRAFIE I MATERIAŁY 4)
We would like to present to you a new, valuable and unique publication of the Museum “Upper Silesian Ethnographic Park in Chorzów”, entitled: Court Records of Rural Areas of Chorzów and Dąb from 1534-1804. The book has been written by Zdzislaw Jedynak in cooperation with Andrzej Sośnierz. The book was published within the Monographs and Materials series, and is a compilation of unique, previously unknown, judicial records of rural areas of Upper Silesia, which are currently stored in one of the archives of Berlin.
Documents included in the book (dating back to the 16th-19th centuries) have been read and published (together with translations). The whole material is preceded by an introduction, allowing to present the context of their origin, giving information on the life of the inhabitants of Dąb and Chorzów. Interestingly, in these two districts there still live people bearing the same names as the characters of the collected archival materials.
The book is accompanied by a CD-ROM containing scanned pages of the court registers in question.
