Contributors Needed

Sutor.Org. is a place for everyone named Sutor or related to a Sutor. There's room here for all. We are looking for visitors to help this site grow in content and features. We've sprinkled invitations throughout the site. If you'd like to see information about you or your family on this site, contact us. We'd love to hear from you and we'd be glad to post your contribution. There are two categories who hope you will consider - Ancestors and Relatives .We post both of these type articles in the Locator section of this site.

Ancestors is the place where you can learn about members of the extended Sutor family who are no longer with us. Contributing this kind of story is a great way to honor the memory of those who you have known and loved.

Relatives is the place where members of the extended Sutor family can meet for the first time or get reacquainted with someone you haven't seen for a while. Note: the relative does not have to be someone born a Sutor. Information about someone who married into the family or someone whose ancestor was a Sutor is also welcome here.

You can also submit an article telling to tell people about yourself. You could tell of something you recently did or accomplished or tell a bit about you life. This also is a great way to post birth announcements, wedding or graduation announcements. We can help you write the article if you wish.

An invitation - look over the names in the July Date Book. If you know or knew any of these persons and would be willing to share any stories about them, please stop by our forum and post your information.

Recalling our Roots

The 4th of July has special significance to the Sutor family since we can trace our roots back to ancestors who fought in the Revolutionary War. These patriots helped secure the freedom we enjoy 230+ years later. They set an example that has been followed by succeeding generations of the Sutor family who have answered their country's call and served in virtually every branch of the military.

July 4th is also a time for families to gather together often in family reunion style. Here in Delaware we will be gathering, rain or shine, for fellowship and good food. If you and your family do likewise, we wish you good weather and good times. We also urge you to contact us and let us know about your celebration.

Inside Sutor.Org we are still seeking assistance from our visitors to add to the annotated family tree. Contained in this section of the site is a listing of the data gathered by your webmaster, his cousin Robert Stockman, and Diana Sutor. While there's a lot of data presented there are still large holes we hope to fill. For that reason each generation also includes a listing of data "needs". If you have done any research on your Sutor relatives, please take a look at these listings to see if you have data that could help expand our knowledge of our ancestors. To send your data to us, just click on any of the contact us. links found throughout this web site. These link to your e-mail program and present you with a preaddressed blank message form. Just add your data and click send. We;d be most pleased to add your data to the listing and give you credit for the addition.

4th of July - A study in Contrasts

By Richard Sutor

I was born in the State of Delaware in April of 1941 and didn't really begin to note the 4th of July as a celebration until after the end of World War II. At that time our local airport, which had been taken over by the military during the war, was returned to local control. Now it needs to be noted Delaware is one of the states which prohibits private purchase and use of fireworks. Perhaps it was the successful ending of the war or possibly some other compelling reasons but this large open area became the site of professional fireworks displays in the late 1940s.

Helpful Information
What's in here?

Sutor.Org web site is now in its 32th year on line. Over these years we've had a small but loyal number of regular visitors and a number of visitors who have stopped by occasionally. We'd like to be attracting a much large number of regular visitors.

We've been wondering if some of our occasional visitors may not be aware of everything that is available on this site. So we created this article as a brief overview of what's here and where it can be found.

HOME PAGE The items on the home page mostly speak for themselves. There are two items, however, that could use a little explanation. The links and the menu bar.

Sprinkled throughout the home page are links that will take you from the home page and onto other pages in this web site. These links are printed in blue and are underlined. Sometimes the link will be the continuation of a home page article or, in the case of the date book, the link will take you to a profile page that lists a bit more information about an individual - sometimes even including their picture. All of these links appear in a window that "floats" above the home page. The window has a close box allowing you to close it and return to a full view of the home page.

The menu bar is located at the top of the home page just below the banner. If you move your cursor over the items in the menu bar you will see each respond by changing color. Each of these menu bar items are sections of this web site. Each contains specialized information. We'll explain these sections a bit later in this article. For now, you need to know two things about these menu bar items. First, menu button for the section you are viewing will have orange colored text and it will not click (since you are already on that page). For all the other menu bar buttons, when the button changes color, you can click it to be taken to that section of the web site.

A Quest to Become a Daughter of the American Revolution

by Diana Sutor

July 4th 1776, the day our nationís leaders signed the Declaration of Independence. Has it really been 233 years since that monumental event occurred in our history? And to think that the descendants of Johan Nicholas Sutor and Mary Shaffer Sutor can trace their lineage to a soldier who fought in the Revolutionary War. Yes, Mary Shaffer Sutorís father Adam Shaffer was a soldier in the Revolutionary War. He was a private in the Pennsylvania Militia serving in Captain Henry Christís Company under the command of Samuel Miles and served from 22 Apr 1776 through Dec 1776 during which time he traveled from Berks County, Pennsylvania to Long Island, New York and back again to Pennsylvania.

The July Links space has room for several more links. Unfortunately, for the month of July, we have articles about only two of the persons appearing in our Date Book. We wish we had more to share with you.

This lack of material points up the importance of the two invitations below. Please read them and respond. You'll be helping us all get to know a little bit more about the persons and personalities making up our extended family.

This site is the work of one man named Sutor. It is not now or ever intended to be a commercial site. It's just my way of using globe-spanning technology to provide a way for this small but far flung family to get reacquainted with its members. I'll be creating a lot of the content but to make this site really valuable your contribution of what you know about the extended Sutor family is most important. I hope you will consider joining with me in this effort.
