From Zilling to Ugartsthal

The colonist Georg Wenzel e.g. took in 1783 the following way into the Sendomir (Sandomierz) area: Bielsko - Biała, Kęty, Zator, Skawina, Brzesko, Tarnów, Dąbrówka, Mielec and Jeżów . Probably my ancestor - Johann Jacob Philipps from Zilling in Lotaringia, together with his family, spent the same time and manner travelling.
Maybe, he travelled together with Wenzel...

Interesting story. Amazing about our ancestors. I see from an earlier post that you have a listing of the original people in Landestreu. I see my ancestors Johan Adam Kitch and his wife Anna Maria Kitsch (born Kohlenberger) mention in there. Their granddaughter and great granddaughter emigrated to Morden Manitoba Canada in 1903.

Dear Rebecca,

There are many people in Canada who has roots in Landestreu and Ugartsthal. And all they are connected... So surely we are also cousins, only the level of connection is unknown :)
Best regards from Poland,
Andrew
