About

 

Throughout time Europe has experienced many different kinds of connecting powers, such as for instant religion, economy, war, famine, illnesses etc. and among these connecting powers there was and still is the connecting power that arises among families, in which the nobility and rich non-noble families try to maintain their position and capital.

 

This website is about one such family, the Broberg family, who originated from noble families from Southern Europe, families such as the Moser von Filsecks, the Fuggers, The Khevenhüllers and the von Humans.

 

The website contains a description of a branch of one of these powerful families, who despite great poverty survived, as they through generations settled further and further north eventually to end up in Greenland as a comparatively important family. It is a story of how hard living conditions and the handling of these conditions through many years can change a family. Least but not last how a family survives although it goes from the sunny side into the shadows.

 

The website is a unique picture of European diversity throughout time as it over a period of 1,000 years depicts different geographical, political, social and economic circumstances.

 

It has been a long and still ongoing process researching my wife's family. In this process I have had the pleasure of cooperating with other European historians. I would like to thank the Swedish historian M.B for finding the birth of Susanna Catharina Lundberg born in Finja Parish 1719, my wife's 8x times great grandmother without his help finding this person I wouldn't have connected the Swedish and German families. I would also like to thank the German historian S.B who kindly showed us the portrait of Balthazar Moser von Filsecks, my wife's 12x great grandfather and Austrian historian Claudia Koch from the Austrian institute who kindly showed us the portraits of Moritz and Maria Welzer von Eberstein my wife's 15x times great grandparents.
