Hello Carl,

 

I have been unable to locate the information you seek. All of our research is done online and it is very rare to locate records as old as the ones you are seeking, online.

Although the Germans did and do keep excellent records, I cannot say for sure that you would even locate the record in Gorlitz. It is also unlikely that the monuments still exist.

However, I would like to give another expert an opportunity to assist you, so I will opt-out of the question.

I wish you good luck in your search.

Shirley

Hello Carl,

 

I came across the record above, I thought it may have fitted into your family tree.

 

Burial records for the Luthern church in Gorlitz are not online. 99.9% of the population of Gorlitz were Luthern 1600's, 1700's

 

The cemetery where your family would have been buried was Nikolai Cemetery, it opened 1600 and closed 1848, the cemetery is open to the public.

In the 1500 almost all of the population in Germany was Chatolic. 31 Oct 1517, Luther nail his credo to the All Saints church. I do not believe that from mid 1500 to 1700, 99.9% was Lutern.


This is importent to me, to direct me to a spesific relegion in my search for buriel places.


On the web I find the phrase "parish-office" where very old documents may be avaiable. Did you know some thing about is?

Expert:  Brendan Joseph replied 1 year ago.
Hello Carl,

"The Protestant Reformation came to Görlitz in the early 1520s and by the last half of the 16th century, it and the surrounding vicinity, became almost completely Lutheran."

source Wiki

The parish office is in St Peter and Paul church in Gorlitz, they have records going back to the 1500's

The cemetery you are looking for is the Nickolai cemetery. The parish office may also hold death and burial records of your Grundling family.

Best of luck with your trip.
