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.
of Sutor.Org traces his family history back to Johan Nicholas Sutor
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.
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.

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. Only occasionally have we felt a bit of a nip
in the air. Despite this the trees have noticed 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.

years back this website helped your webmaster get to
know a relative he didn't even know he had. Diana Sutor
lives almost midway across the country and is married
to a descendent of a different branch of the Sutor family.
This branch, however, also had its roots in Havre De
Grace, MD with the family of Johan NIcholas and Mary
but developed through the a different sibling than the
branch from which I am descended. Still that does not
change the fact we are related. Diana had developed a
keen interest in genealogical research and , along with
her daughter, had made many discoveries regarding those
who can trace their ancestors back to the Sutor family
of Havre de Grace. In a recent e-mail she shared these
remember in 2005/2006 when we first were working on the
Sutor family tree together that I was the first person
to upload the information on Johan Nicholas Sutor to
the family tree section of Ancestry.com, and this morning
out of curiosity, I looked up how many family trees have
him as part of their tree and there are now 44 public
trees and eight private trees. I am truly amazed."
would love to hear from some of the folks who have contributed
to the data on Ancestry .Com. Who knows, we may find,
like Diana and I did, that branches of our family can
grow closer together.
also extend our thanks to everyone who has contributed
to the Sutor data on ancestry.com . With more individuals
contributing there's so much more that can be learned.
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.

Diana Sutor runs a great web site loaded with information.
Here's a link to it:
web site is now in its 10th 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
of regular visitors.
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
it can be found.
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.
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
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
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
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.
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.
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.
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
on the Web There are many other persons named Sutor who either
have their own web site or are noted on other web sites. This section provides
a set of links to allow you to visit these other Sutor web sites and easily
return to Sutor.Org. Posted here are:
Web Sites - web sites created by a member of the extended Sutor family about
themselves or their accomplishments
or web sites containing information about a living
member of the Sutor family.
