Habich from Prussia
My name is Erich Habich, from Cologne in Germany.
My family came from Prussia, now Poland, to Cologne in 1936.
The left the family estate there, granted them by order of Emperor 'Der Alte Fritz', in the 18th century, or thereabouts.
The estate was bestowed to the family for services by one of my ancestors in the Prussian Army (I believe the 100 year War).
The choice was given, according to my father, between either becoming a nobleman, or to have land...
The family bred horses for the Prussian Army.
My efforts in Poland to find any trace of my family ran into the ground, since I was told the birth records were burned.
I now live in Galway, Ireland, with the intention to get married and settle here.
