Reply with quote

Searching for any possible relatives of my Catholic ancestor Antonius (Josephus Franciscus) ANDERMANN

1803 baptism
Weigelsdorf, Reichenbach, Breslau, Schlesien, Preußen, Deutschland (German)
Wigancice, Wroclaw, Silesia (Polish)
father (Johann) Christoph Andermann & mother (Maria) Theresia Muckin

unknown when immigrated to America

1835 marriage
St. Mary's catholic church in New Orleans, Louisiana (United States)
wife Hortense Katterlet (French)

1849 carpenter who built St. Mary's catholic chapel in Convent, Louisiana

1858 death/burial
St. Michael's catholic church in Convent, Louisiana

His grandson Antoine SMOLOK (middle name possibly based upon Polish surname?) Andermann baptized in 1889 in St James parish of Louisiana

I don’t think that there will be any ANDERMANNs still in Silesia area but perhaps - Smolak, Smolek, or Smolok - could be found in Poland specifically around Silesia area to see if somehow related??

Hi,
It may surprise you, but there are a handful of people using the surname ANDERMANN in Poland. As you can see on this map, there are 6 people, all living in Drogoszowice:
https://nazwiska-polskie.pl/Andermann
Now that you have gotten to that website, you can look for your other names (Smolak, Smolek, Smolok) by entering a name in the box "Nazwisko" (that means surname) and clicking on "znajdz".
When you are searching for records, such as the ship's passenger list for your Andermann, remember not to use the forms of the names you listed above - - Antonius, Josephus, Franciscus. These are all Latin forms of the names, and that is how they would appear in church records when they were kept in Latin. However, as he went about his daily life, he would have used Polish forms of these names (Antoni, Jozef, Franciszek), or German forms, depending on which language he spoke.
Best of luck in your search,
Sophia
