Riedel History:


Ścinawa Nyska (German/Silesian: Steinsdorf) is a village in the administrative district of Gmina Korfantów, within Nysa County, Opole Voivodeship, in south-western Poland. Steinsdorf was part of the Diocese of Breslau in Prussia/Germany prior to World War II.

Church records for Steinsdorf are located with those from nearby Steinau.

Additional Info:

Little is known about Johann Riedel or his Riedel ancestors. Johann Riedel and Barbara Linke lived in Steinsdorf, Diocese of Breslau, Prussia when their children were born. Johann is listed as an "Einlieger" on both Peter's birth and marriage records. A likely translation is "a lodger or hired hand who does not own the property".

Research is ongoing.
