Your posting intrigued me as a lot of the names are in my family - close and extended.

I went through notes from 1975 when I started this (no computers then). My grandmother Sute was born Margareta Sute at 30 Ceplje. Baptized at SigParochineM – Nemska Loka (Don’t understand the writing.)
Her mother was Katherine Peschel; father Joseph Sute.

My grandmother’s sister (Lucija) used to live in Celpje 13 or 30. Last name hard to read – could be Pavlic. She visited us around 1962. I know she was living there in 1975. She had children.

But I am really curious about Schmalz/Smalz. I can find no record of my grandfather’s (Michael Schmalz) immigration to America and was wondering if there is another spelling. I believe he came from Lazi – but ………. No one alive in 1970 could remember anything and my grandmother was not on the best of terms with the Schmalz’s. What info I have is written on butcher paper!

My grandfather’s family (Schmalz) presumably owned two grist mills, and some farms. They also had an interest in a restaurant/bar. I have an old foto postcard.

My grandfather’s (Michael Schmalz) parents were Joseph Schmalz and Frances (spelling) Mueller. He also had two sisters that my mother recalls (but never mingled with even though they came to America around 1907-1915) Anna (Angie) and Barbara (she recalls)

I have found an Anna Schmalz who was born in 1886+/- in Reiz Krain and destined for 18 Star Street which is in the same neighbor hood where Peter Schmalz (nephew of Michael Schmalz)born 1881 in Lazi went. His record shows he left a wife Margaret at Lazi 11. So I guess they could be related.

There is also another reference on the butcher paper. (have no idea relationship). Note says County Clerk RE:

Rudolph Schmalz

If this sounds confusing, it is to me too.
