Hi to hopefully Rutar decendents:
Where to begin. Briefly, the Rutar Family at the turn of the century involved the following names; Rutar, Glatch, Cimoncic, Kraker, Grill, Hummel and Ehigh.
Grill is my father's mother and I have loads on her since she is tracable back into a small community called Gottschee in old Austria. Rutar, my grandfather, comes thru a town called Zuzemberk in Slovenia. Gottschee is now called Kocevje in the current Slovenia.
That is all I have on the Rutar's, but they were big time in the immigration of the Slovenes to Ohio and Pennsylvania.
I hope someone can help me get the ball rolling in this forum. I have over 200 Rutar decendents here in America to share with you.
