Well, after this, he was punished by serving in the forests in Belmont, White Russia. It took me forever to locate this place but I could never find anything on Google, probably because of the language barrier.
Recently Anastasia Dmietrienko, a Baltic area researcher contacted me through LinkedIn. And she has been so kind to help me and located two links with pictures of Belmonty, the church and Park/palace areas. Here are the links:
The Akhremovtsy (Belmonty) Church 1858 -
Belmont Park 1780 – 1920(50)http://orda.of.by/.add/gallery.php?ahremovcy/manor_main/sf
For me, this was wonderful and now I can share these links with other family members who might like to see where Franz Gralla lived. And it does look foresty...doesn't it? The cemetery brings some thoughts to my mind that Franz had a couple of children that were buried there.
Thanks Anastasia! If anyone would need a professional researcher in the Baltic area, please let me know and I will happily share her information! You might also Check her blog at this link. This is a Russian language blog. Anastasia has given me permission to share her email address which is firstname.lastname@example.org. So feel free to contact her!
Here is a little update on Belmont. The church in Belmonty was open from 1768-and then there was a fire and 10 years ago the church was rebuilt. Here you can See the link to the present Catholic church. And here is a Polish site that describes the Braslaw area.
