  1. Welcome to Geneabloggers!
    Reading your blog, it struck me that the Pastoor name sounds very Dutch. I know you mention that "your" Pastoor possibly came from Hamburg. But when I checked the largest Dutch data base, there were over 5,000 hits for this name! My reason for sending you this comment is that I also have a blog with many genealogical subjects. One of my posts shows a survey of foreign genealogical blogs/sites showing Dutch origin surnames. The URL is http://www.patmcast.blogspot.com/2012/05/dutch-ancestors.html. The idea is to try and establish contacts between people who have an interest in the same surname. There are numerous cases in The Netherlands where people emigrated centuries ago without leaving a trace in Dutch archives. With my blog I try to bring Dutch and foreign (mainly US/CAN) genealogists together.
    Therefore, I like to have your permission to show your site in my a.m. blog.
    I look forward to your reaction!
    Kind regards,
    Peter

    1. Thank you, Peter, I would love for you to show my site in your blog. I haven't make the Dutch connection yet; My immigrant ancestor was from Germany, Hamburg I think. The writing is illegible on the one document that lists his origin. I know the family spoke German, but I wouldn't be surprised if there was some Dutch in there. I know my Outhouse family has Dutch origins. I will certainly check out your resources. Thanks.

    2. Your blog is now shown in mine, thanks for your permission.
      Hamburg is not too far away from the NE part of the Netherlands so...
      I was surprised to read your Outhouse family has got Dutch roots. Outhouse is not a Dutch name but I suspect it is an Americanisation (if that is a word)/translation of the Dutch name Buitenhuis. In any case I've mentioned this name as well in my list.
      Hope you are being contacted.
      I'll keep an eye on your blog by following you
      Kind regards,
      Peter

    3. Thank you, Peter. I know Outhouse sounds German, but the first immigrant ancestor was Simon van Uythuysen, born circa 1623 in Leudal, Limburg, Nederland. I haven't verified the information, but their is an Outhouse family history book with the information.

    4. That is useful information. I'll replace Buitenhuis by Uythuysen. It is a rare name here but it did exist.

  2. So nice to have another Outhouse researcher. I've been working on this tree for about 40 years. Fortunately, my aunts and other distant cousins have done a lot of work before me. But it's fun keeping up with it.

  3. Oddly, I found this because of searching for Chrzanowsky information and just when I see the area you're researching them in and realize it's probably not the same family...I see Conklin, which is also in my family...just on the other side! Haha

    Anyway, I was looking for Chrzanowsky (and all the different spelling variations) from the Steznica area - at the time my family was there it was Austria, but now it's Poland. I was trying to connect some earlier generations so I was hoping you knew your grandfathers parents names, but I don't know as we're from the same line now anyway.

    Do you have a tree on any of the genealogy sites?

    I can be contacted at erin.e.burger @ gmail.com

    Thanks in advance!

    1. I've seen information about your family. There is a probate file with guardianship papers for the minor children: Thomas, Mary, and Oretus. You can find them in FamilySearch. This family isn't in my direct line so I don't have any records for your James. You might want to check fold3 for military records. The newspaper site Old Fulton New York Post Cards has newspapers for this time and area where you might find more information as well. Happy Hunting!

  5. My grandfather's last name was Gorski and he was supposedly a wealthy land owner in Radzilow. When the Germans invaded Poland they burned down the building that stored all of the records/deed of land ownership. After the war, when the Russians came and confiscated all lands, my grandfather died a pauper. I have no idea what his first name was. His wife, my grandmother, first name was Eugenia. They had two children, Teresa and Stanislaw. If you have any info, thank you in advance for sharing.

    1. Interesting. I know very little about my Gorski line. Stefania Gorski was my grandmother's mother. My grandmother's name was Eugenia, called "Jean." Stefania's mother was Eleanor Truszkowski, but Eleanor was supposedly married 6 times; I don't know if Truszkowski is her maiden name or one of her married names. One of Stefania's stepfathers was a Walatys who lived in Radzilow. Stefania and her husband, Frank Dabrowski are buried in Radzilow.
