Subject: Sandner vulgo Sandtner, Santner
Unsere Familie ist seit vielen Generationen in Bayern ansässig, wobei die ersten Vorfahren, die wir bisher ermitteln konnten aus Tirol stammten. Die Informationen sind allerdings äußerst lückenhaft. Zum einen ein Ratsprotokoll von 1644: "Antony Sandtner aus Tyrol gebürthig", zum anderen ein Eintrag in einem Lehenbuch von 1650 über diesen Anton Sandtner: "Antony Sandtner vermeldt 1619 Bartolome Sandtner filius".
Es könnte also sein, daß Anton Sandtner, der erste Vorfahr der sich in Bayern niederließ aus Tirol stammte, dort wahrscheinlich 1619 geboren wurde wobei der Name seines Vaters Bartholomäus war. Mehr insbesondere irgendwelche Orte, haben wir bisher nicht ermitteln können.
Wir würden uns sehr freuen ein e-mail mit ein paar guten Tips (möglicherweise von der Tiroler Verwandtschaft) zu bekommen. Vielen Dank im voraus! Peter Sandner

Subject: Steinhofer in Baumhacken
My grandfather, Joseph Steinhofer, immigrated to the U.S. in 1908. His naturalization papers list Baumhacken as his home town yet we are unable to locate it. Are you aware of a village/city with that name? Stories from aunts and uncles indicate that it is possibly on the Hungarian/Austrian border. I am trying to locate that village/city as well as my grandfather's brother, Jacob, who stayed in Europe.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

Pepe Jesinger's shop in the centre of the village, in the square, with the cemetery up the stairs and round the back. we met Pepe in the summer of 1965 when we called, he died a few years later and I believe the shop was sold but My father-in-law had photographs of the shopwith the very large tree in front of the shop as a small sapling. believe that Pepe was my wifes great uncle. When we visited Strasswalchen we called in at the cemetery to find her Great grandfather's grave still there with a photograph of him on it but I believe it has now been removed. Please could you provide me with any information that might be of assistance.

Subject: Tyrol (Tirol) Ancestry
My ancestors on both my mother's and father's sides were Tyrolean. I am especially interested in the history of the Austrian Province of South Tyrol (Tirol) which was ceded to Italy in around the time of the First World War. My family to this day declares that they are and always will be Austrians--although the language is definitely an Italian dialect. Since I have found some relatives who are also interested in preserving this very distinctive, little-known culture, and have discovered some interest abroad as well, I am very interested in hosting and coordinating a site for this particular "country." Can you advise?

Subject: Odrati, Austria
Am attempting genealogical research of my wife's maternal family. The name is Brosch. Her uncle Louis (Aloise) Brosch stated, on his intention to naturalize in the USA, that he was born in Odrati, Austria. Can you give me any clue as to how I may find that location? The family spoke German, but admitted to having Polish blood. Louis' mother told of being Bohemian, all of which figures with the pre-1900 history of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. What source can I seek find that specific location? Thanks.
