    Hello from the Uk

    I am researching my husbands GGGrandfather.
    Charles Oscar Klust
    b: 1830 Hirschberg Prussia.
    His Fathers name was Ernest.

    I have UK census from 1861, 71 and 81 also his marriage in 1857 in Pancras London England.
    We would like to learn how and when he would have emigrated to the UK also about his life in Hirschberg.
    I have very little knowledge on how to trace him and appreciate any help or advice.

    Regards

    Hirschberg is (was) a city in Silesia/Prussia.

    Let's take a look into Encyclopedia Britannica 1911 edition.

    HIRSCHBERG, a town of Germany, in the Prussian province of Silesia, beautifully situated at the confluence of the Bober and Zacken, 11 20 ft. above the sea-level, 48 m. S.E. of Goerlitz, on the railway to Glatz, with branches to Gruenthal and Schmiedeberg. Pop. (1905) 19,317. It is surrounded by pleasant promenades occupying the site of its former fortifications. It possesses an Evangelical church, the church of the Holy Cross, one of the six Gnaden Kirchen for the Silesian Protestants stipulated for in the agreement at Altranstadt between Charles XII. of Sweden and the emperor Joseph I. in 1707, four Roman Catholic churches, one of which dates from the 14th century, a synagogue, several schools, an orphanage and an asylum. The town is the principal emporium of commerce in the Silesian mountains, and its industries include the carding and spinning of wool, and the manufacture of linen and cotton fabrics, yarn, artificial flowers, paper, cement, porcelain, sealing-wax, blacking, chemicals and cider. There is also a lively trade in corn, wine and agricultural produce. The town is celebrated for its romantic surroundings, including the Cavalierberg, from which there is a splendid view, the Hausberg, the Helicon, crowned by a small Doric temple, the Kreuzberg, with walks commanding beautiful views, and the Sattler ravine, over which there is a railway viaduct. Hirschberg was in existence in the 11th century, and obtained town rights in 1108 from Duke Boleslaus of Poland. It withstood a siege by the Hussites in 1427, and an attack of the imperial troops in 1640. The foundation of its prosperity was laid in the 16th century by the introduction of the manufacture of linen and veils.

    Welcome.
    The sense of honor is of so fine and delicate a nature that
    it is only to be met with in minds which are naturally noble or
    cultivated by good examples and a refined education.
    - Sir Richard Steele

    Hello and welcome to the forum

    On Skadi the best place for you to post will be within the geneology section of the general anthropology sub-forum which can be found towards the bottom of the forum index.

    You may want to try posting on some ancestry specific forums also as you may find some more useful information there, not that we're not useful here
