Prussia-Brieg military garrison
« on: Thursday 21 March 19 01:16 GMT (UK) »
Hello All,

I am looking for an ancestor in Prussian military in 1795. He was a musketeer in Generała von Rytz regiment, von Balvin company, Brieg garrison. He most likely got married before 1795 and died before year 1803.  The Brieg was a city then Kingdom of Prussia and now in Poland. Perhaps some military enthusiast could help me with finding the number of this regiment? Then I could locate it's military church records. 
Only other information I managed to find is that the possible commander of the company Major Wilhelm Jarolsaw von Balvin died in Brieg in 1797.

Many thanks

Peonie. Many thanks. I managed to find a marriage record of my ancestors in the catholic church in Brieg ( there is no info about the church name). Could any one help me to decipher it, please?

There were 60 numbered musketeer regiments, also known by their colonels in chief, ie von Rytz. I have the complete Prussian Army organisation lists for 1806. There is no von Rytz, presumably he had died recently and been replaced. Someone has been asking about the same matter on a Austro-Hungarian Army Site.
