Wischnitz Communion Records

The above sample of the images for Wischnitz, now Wisnicze in Silesia which are now online, show my ancestral Gralla family on the left side.  The nice thing about communion records is that quite often a family is listed together.  Many times, there are many years of communion records and you can follow the family demographics as family members "leave the nest", or die. 

My family consists of Johann, wife Agatha maiden name Grochla and there children, Johanna, Marya, Anton, Valentin, all of the little village of Giegowitz in the year 1835.  Below is the entry for the year 1836 and you will note the scribe added some birth years behind the names of some children.

If you click, you will see the images in a larger view.  Her is the same family, Johann Gralla  with wife Agatha Grochla and children, Anna, Marya, Anton born 7 Apr 1827 and Valentin, 13 Feb 1831 and Francisca who was added in the year since their last communion.
