In 1772 Poland was divided up between Prussia, Russia and Austria basically because they could. Austria created a new Province of Galicia with the 78,000 square miles of Polish land. In 1774 the Austrian Emperor Franz Joseph II created "Settlement Charters" which encouraged thousands of settlers to emigrate to Galicia. These settlers generally prospered but for various reasons some of them moved on to Russia. This Topic is intended to discuss all matters associated with these German-Galiziens and their migration to the Black Sea.

Galizien Germans as we are known are fortunate to have some very valuable resources. First among those resources is the Galizien German Descendants organization (http://www.galiziengermandescendants.org/) (GGD). All sorts of information about the Germans who settled in Galicia is available on this website including our most valuable resource for Galizien Germans which is the Village Familybooks (OFB). The Hilfskomitee der Galiziendeutschen (Assistance Committee for the Galician Germans) organization in Germany (https://www.galizien-deutsche.de/assistance-committe-for-the-galician-germans.htm) created these family books by transcribing births, deaths and marriages from original church records into family groups and then combining all the family groups in a village into a single village book (Ort Familienbuch). The Hilfskomitee Familybooks are periodically updated with the latest available information. Information about getting these Familybooks is found on the GGD website at http://www.galiziengermandescendants.org/Familybooks.htm. (Murray Gauer, GGD Webmaster)

My family was part of this emigration as they left Birkenfeld, Rheinland, Pflaz in 1784 to settle in the town of Bedrykowice in the far south east corner of Galicia before moving on to the Black Sea in 1864.
