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.

Sutor Quick Fact

Those of us who are trying to do genealogical research often have to rely on census records for vital information regarding dates of birth and death. Unfortunately the way this information was recorded in the various censuses varied. To make matters worse, the oldest census records were are transcribed in hand written script. Some of the records are far less legible than others. Robert Stockman has observed that this is understandable. Think about the census taker carrying bottles of ink and quill pens from door to door - juggling all these and the census book hoping that nothing gets spilled or that blots happen. Its a wonder that anything got properly transcribed.

Gravestones contain birth and death information that is usually more readable but often genealogical researchers don't live in the area where the persons under study lived. And in too many cases there is no record where a person may have been buried. is a web site that is attempting to provide help to those seeking information on burial places. Their web site provides not only information on a grave location but also provides a photo of the headstone so the researcher can view the information to confirm it was transcribed correctly. The link below takes you to a page where 10 Sutor grave sites are listed.

Giving Thanks in Many Ways

November hosts two holidays. One has become more and more important as the years roll on while the other seems to get less and less attention.

Thanksgiving traditionally brings families together yet it, too, has changed over the years. Paula A. Sutor reflects on how her holiday traditions - including Thanksgiving - have changed.

Several years back Diana Sutor and Robert Stockman compiled a listing of family members who have served their county. Later we had addition contributions from David Sutor and Roxann Moore as well as continued contributions from Diana and Robert. We encourage other visitors to this site to submit the names of family members who have served or are serving in the military so we can continue to expand this yearly tribute.

As our families gather this holiday season we hope there will be time for story telling and these stories get written down and submitted to Sutor.Org. Our Meet an Ancestor, Meet a Relative, and Talent Spotlight areas are great places to share these stories with the rest of the extended family.

In Honor of Those who Served

Each November the United States marks Veterans Day. Members of the extended Sutor family have a long and proud tradition of serving their country.

Listed below, thanks to the research of Diana Sutor and Robert Stockman, David Sutor, and Roxann Moore are those the names family members who have served as members of the various branches of the United States Military.

While this list contains all the known members of the family, it is not complete. If you or one of your relatives were a member of any branch of the military, please contact us. We need the person's name, branch of service, dates of service. We will add these names to the list as they are received.

This space has room for several more links. And, as you can see from our datebook, even that has a few sections with no data. 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.

An invitation - look over the names in the September Date Book. If you know or knew any of these persons (or are related or married to any of them) and would be willing to share any stories about them, please stop by our forum and post your information. It also would be great if you see your name in the datebook and would be willing to drop us a line with some information we could post. Lawrence Stockman, III did and we thank him for doing this.

An extended invitation - do you know, or knew any members of the the extended Sutor family who have ties to the month of August? If so, we'd like to know of them also. Please stop by our forum and tell us about them.



Meet A Relative
by Paula A. Sutor

When I moved from Delaware to California back in 1993, one of the things I immediately missed about the east coast was the seasons - well, the seasons and good pizza, but that's a whole different topic. The joke about San Francisco Bay Area weather is that it's 60 degrees and breezy all the time. It's true. It rarely gets above 70 or below 50. Summer is actually a bit chilly here, but spring and autumn are filled with sunny, sweater -weather days and pleasantly brisk evenings.

Last night was Halloween and it was a clear crisp night. As we left a friend's house - our last stop of the evening in showing off my son's homemade robot costume, we looked up in the sky and saw the shining waxing gibbous moon. Scott, my husband, pointed out that there was a large ring around it. "That means it's going to snow," he joked. And just for a moment I really wished snow were a possibility.

Helpful Information
What's in here?

Sutor.Org web site is now in its 13th 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.

SECTIONS All of the main pages of the various sections display that same banner as the home page and the menu bar so you can freely move about the web site. The first page of a section is a kind of home page for that section telling you the kind of information found there and providing links to allow you to access whatever you wish.

About this Site This section is an expanded version of this article. It contains in-depth information about each section of the Sutor.Org web site as well as background information about the creation of this web site and a number of articles to assist those visitors who would like to write materials for posting on this site.

Let's Hear From You!
This site is for everyone who is now or who may once have been named Sutor. You don't need to be a member of the webmaster's branch of the family tree. If this describes you, please contact us and tell us a bit about yourself and your branch of the family tree.

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.
