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

The logo above is for the German-Texan Heritage Society. While October is the month for the great old German festival Oktoberfest, this is not the only reason for calling attention to the Society.

The webmaster of Sutor.Org traces his family history back to Johan Nicholas Sutor who emigrated to "the Colonies" from Germany prior to the Revolutionary War. While Johan first settled in Pennsylvania then later moved to Havre de Grace, Maryland, he was certainly not the only Sutor of German ancestry to come to this land.

Founded in 1978 the German-Texas Heritage Society documents the accomplishments of Texans of German descent. Their web site provides assistance to those doing genealogical research. And, wouldn't you know it, they have listings for staff and students who attended their German Free School which was incorporated in 1857 that include several persons named Sutor. The Society is interested in hearing from descendants of those listed.

Try the links below to display their home page, a page about the German Free School, and a page listing staff and students. You'll need to scroll down a bit on that last one to locate the Sutor information.

Fall Settles In

As long time visitors to this web site know the webmaster and his family live on the East Coast in the State of Delaware.

Delaware is one of those states where the seasons don't always match up with the calendar. Although fall began at the end of September the days and nights here have been warm enough they we just closed our swimming polol aabout a wekk ago. . WE are just beginnig to feel a bit of a nip in the air. Despite this the trees have started to notice it is time to change colors and get ready for winter. The image above shows the big maple tree that once stood in our front yard. While it is now a memory it was replaced with a tulip poplar that has started its transition in its upper most branches. And, in a few weeks it will be time for the annual visit of the neighborhood children as we mark yet another Halloween. Once that happens the holiday season will be upon us.

We extend a word of welcome to any new visitors to this site and a word of thanks to our continuing visitors. We are always pleased to hear from you also. Please drop us a line and let us know what you like about this and about any additional features you'd like to see included.

It is our sincere hope that some of our web visitors who may have photos of ancestors and/or photos of the tomb stones of some of the members of our extended family and would also be willing to submit them for inclusion in one of the albums. Contact us either through the forum or through e-mail so we can make arrangements for sharing.

Contact us and let us know what you'd like to see in here. We'll do our best to make it happen.


The October Links
Click on any of the links below to go directly to these articles.


Lawrence Emory Sutor



May C. (Donahue) Sutor




George T. Sutor




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.

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.

Helpful Information
What's in here?

Sutor.Org web site is now in its 12th 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.

The Almanac This section is an expanded version of the date book. While the current month's notable dates always appear on the home page, the Almanac section gives you access to the full year. Found here are year long

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.
