Language Borders are Fluid

Did your ancestor speak more than one language or is it possible that he spoke the language you didn't "expect him to?" Political borders in Europe changed frequently for some time and the borders in regards to the spoken language are even more fluid--despite what the official language of the area is.

Some borders are more fluid than others. Language and cultural practices don't often change immediately when a political boundary is crossed.
