I appreciate your comments and look forward to reading what you have to say. Thanks for stopping by. I am pleased to have discovered Josiah Schmidt's The German-American Genealogist Blog this week and would like to recommend it to you if you're trying to find your German ancestors or learn more about your German-American ancestors.
There are posts about German records; German names and naming patterns; occupations; geography; writing; customs; German websites for research; and more. Plus more to come.
What was Peasant Life Like? Our Daily Bread: German Village Life 1500-1850
This is a young blog so there aren't scores of previous posts but the older posts are all excellent and well worth the time to read them. They discussed the daily life and customs of the common folk who lived in the areas that make up Germany today.
The author created a fictitious village called Hochfeld am Neckar in southwestern Germany and tells the story of village life through the events in the life of her main character, Johann Adam Mann, his family, ancestors, and neighbors. The book sets the groundwork in the first three chapters, covering peasant status, religion, and war. While most of the events she wrote about occur in the s, they are still applicable to earlier generations.
Nor does she ignore earlier historical events that shaped the villagers lives—the Reformation, the 30 Years War. The book was both informative and easy-to-read. I bought the Kindle ebook, but it is available in paperback, as well. I would recommend it to any genealogist with German ancestors. This is an affiliate link.
