Please, Michaela, Poland in this connection hurts. I'm of one branch of the two in Breslau. My Grandfather was calles Wilhelm and he owned a whole street in Breslau. All my ancestors were architects. The name is widespread in Silesia, in all parts, those which are still parts of Germany, some still in Danzig, Poland, were they escaped to in 45. The name was typical for the austrian part of Silesia, which now is Ceck. Our ancestors originally come from Vienna, where they left during Maria Theresia (nice story behind). The name such comes from Vienna, and is still found nearby in Bratislava. Where are you based. Hi Hans. My family now lives in Berlin.
