Gengenbach oder Nordrach, aus der glashutten Knobelswald
« on: February 27, 2015, 08:35:13 PM »
I am looking for information on the Knoblswald glassworks located near Nordrach, Germany. I have some information from various Wiki sites but am looking for more detail.

I am especially interested in one employee: Joseph Greiner, born about 1700. Joseph married Ursula Willmann (dau of Johann Willmann & Barbara Laule) 9 May 1723 Neukirch. I am most interested in his birthplace, his parents' names, and the names of any children of he and Ursula. Thanks!

Fine - let's do a bit of genealogy here ;-).

I assume you've seen - have you tried to consult the literature mentioned there?

Glass makers Greiner from Knobelswald and Äule are mentioned on Saar-Ahnen-Klein in connection with Scherzinger. The author seems to be interested in other glass maker families as well - so it might be worthwhile to contact him.

The forum of the Siegwart family (also a large glass maker family) contains contributions mentioning Greiner as being related (by marriage) to the Siegwarts on several occasions (do a forum search for Greiner). One author deals on his own web page with several glass maker families (though Greiner is not mentioned).

There is also a thread on the glass maker family Greiner on ... I recommend you register there (for free and without obligation) and add your question(s). Don't hesitate - English is fine on this forum.
