Researching the Bartsch Family. Johann August Bartsch (b.1872) son of Andreas Bartsch and Magdalena Mirtischnik of Merka and Bautzen. He married Katharina N. Mazue on May 8, 1904 and they migrated to the USA in 1905. Her Parents were Anna Batos and Johann Mazur. Also I am interested in knowing anything about the BARTSCH RIVER now the Spree River and the location of a village Bartschdorf.
