We are still trying to locate information on the surname Schlesinger which
goes back to Czechoslovakia in the late 1800's. One of our proven
relation was living on a "Schlesinger Majer" near Nove' Mesto, nad Va'hom,
Czechoslovakia (near Piestany) and conceived my Grandfather. We have no
name nor proof of a father to him, but it was rumoured that it was the
owner of the farm, a Mr.Schlesinger.
I have yet to come across any Schlesinger researchers anywhere that have
this lineage as well, so I'm reaching for straws now :(
More explicity, the proof we thus far have is:
Jan Hrusovsky b. 08 Oct 1912
Jan's mother was Julianna Hrusovska b. 01 Jun 1891 in Nove' Mesto nad
Va'hom, Czechoslovakia. We believe his father may have been ____
Julianna's parents were:
Stefan Hrusovsky b. 07 Dec. 1860 in Mnesice #43, Czechoslovakia
Eva Stukovszky b. 03 Jan 1862 in Mnesice #12, Czechoslovakia.
(They had 4 children:
Jan Hrusovsky b. 31 Dec. 1885 Mnesice #12, Czechoslovakia, d. ABT 1945
in USA Andrej Hrusovsky b. 19 Nov 1887 (killed by German soldiers during
Julianna Hrusovska b. 01 Jun 1891 Nove' Mesto nad Va'hom, Czeckoslovakia
d. 10 Nov 1973 in Budapest, Hungary
Stefanus Hrusovsky b. 03 Sep 1894, Mnesice, Czechoslovakia, d. 14 Jun
I was thinking of some sort of DNA testing to either prove or disprove that
we came >from the Schlesinger lineage - at least then we'd know what to pursue.
I know there are many DNA testings going on throughout the world to prove
lineages -- does anyone know if there is such testing going on with any
Schlesingers? We have been at a brick wall on this for a couple years and
feel like it's now our only hope to see if this is the lineage we need to
pursue or not.
