der Dobrudschadeutschen in Bildern: 1840 - 1940 - 1990
Published by the Dobrudschadeutsche Landsmannschaft, Heilbronn,
Germany, 1992, 546 pages, hardcover, in German language.
The book is a picture album with which to relax and to remember.
It contains black & white family photos, group shots, snap shots
of the working environment of farmers or other skilled workers,
celebrations which reflect life in Dobrudscha German society and
the achievements of the people. The photos show customs and clothing
of our ancestors in their host country where they had lived for
100 years or more.
There are extensive photographs of of the Dobrudscha German villages.
Villages include Alakap, Atmachscha, Karamurat, Karatai, Kulelie,
Konstanza, Mamuslie, Serdimen, Tschukurow, Jakobsonstal, and many
more. Each of the villages has a section which includes community
scenes, homes, and many family photographs.
You may even find one of your own relatives in this volume which
is like a big family album. There are brief histories of families,
a picture of a long-haired, bearded Lipovanian, one of the wind
mill. Although most pictures are from the old homeland, a few depict
a new life in Germany.
There are good maps about the migration and settlements in the
Dobrudscha. Songs of the Dobrudscha Germans are included.
