Hello list,

I have been researching my ancestors from the Wirsitz area of West Prussia.
In a book of the history of the village of Kaiserdorf (Mlotkowo), it says that
the Wallner family forefathers were from Salzburg, but that "Willi Wallner did
not know if they beonged to the great "trek" from 1732-34, or if they came
later and got stuck in Kaiserdorf."

Can anyone refer me to a book and/or website where I can learn more about this
"great trek?"  This was the first time I have heard of it.
