I would like to introduce myself. I am a new member
and I saw Celia's SOS this morning about deleting a
spam mail. She was correct - I did reply privately to
her mail called The Five *Familiantin* of Tabor Stadt,
1793! I hoped she might be able to help me answer some
of these questions. However Celia suggested I also
post them to the whole SIG - so here is my first
I found the article on the Familantin of Tabor very interesting.
I myself am a born GUTTMANN living in Switzerland.
In July, I was in Prague, where I found in the archives
[register books of birth) information about both my gtgt-grandparents.
My GUTTMANNs moved to Prague in June 1894, where some
of their children were born. Before moving to Prague,
my gt-grandparents lived in Nowy Sacz (Neu-Sandez) and
What I would like to know is:
1. Are the Tabor GUTTMANN families related to mine?
2. How are Tabor - Nowy Sacz - Wisnitz (Visnice)
connected to each other?
3. Are the GUTTMANN families in this area related to
4. When and why did they leave this area for Prague?
5. During WWI und WWII many Jews left for Vienna,
Amsterdam and other European countries and then to
the US. Are there any sources to trace back these
different migrations in order to find living family
6. Here is an insight into our GUTTMANN tree:
