not have the name of any village or shtetl, which may make this research
impossible. I am also posting an inquiry on GerSIG as I know it also covers
Alsace.

I would appreciate hearing >from anyone who may be familiar with the name
PLATTEIS/PLATTUS.
Hello,
About Alsace. We have good "censuses" of Alsace in 1808 and 1851. You can
find the indexes of these censuses on our Website www.genealoj.org , in
the section "Other Researches". I have found there no mention of PLATTEIS
/ PLATTUS. Nevertheless, one can find the name BLATT in Cernay(Haut-Rhin)
in 1808 and 1851, and in Thann (Haut-Rhin) in 1851 and the name PLATTE in
1808 at Besançon (in the file Haut-Rhin).

May I also suggest that you ask a question on the same site in the Section
"Questions-Answers".

Good luck
