    Prussians are still around. The boarders and names just changed. I have a few Prussian ancestors, myself.

    I know that my family has always considered themselves unequivocally German, however, as referenced by my Oma (who I am fortunate to say is still with us at 102 years of age) our family came from Prussia. Both she, my Opa, and my father came from the area known as the Dobriner Land along the Weischsel River just south of Torun. She from Wolschebuden (Makowiska in Polish) and my father and Opa from Lentzen (Wlecz in Polish). Upon being expelled from the area with all other Germans at the end of WWII she fled with my father and other family members to Germany where they resided for another 4 years before emmigrating to Canada in the footsteps of earlier relatives.

    My relatives refer to themselves as Prussians as well.

    I to have an Oma of age. 96 currently and she has been a huge influence in my life. We are truly blessed and fortunate, you and I.

    Yes, I couldn't agree more; the stories I have heard from her over the years and the family history she has been able to provide me with has been tremendous.
