Message Board Post:
Thanks for the message about Landroche/Landwehr.
What I am looking is something that I saw years ago but did not save and do not recall its location on the Internet.
That site stated the Landwehr name originated in the 12th?, 13th?, 14th? century. A landowner in what was later known as East Prussia organized some of the peasants into a local defense force (Landwehr)
If anyone knows of the site, please advise me at
