I have done a great deal of research on the UTSCHIG surname both in the United States and in the Czech Republic. If anyone is connected with this surname that I have not already contacted, please contact me--I will be happy to share whatever information you might need. My great great grandfather Johann Utschig immigrated to the United States in Oct 1853 along with a few of his children. He married Elisabeth Schicker in Marienbad, now in the Czech Republic, then in Austria (under the Austrian-Hungarian rule). I believe some of his older children stayed in the Marienbad / Pilsen area.
Many with the surname UTSCHIG are located in Germany where most of the German-Bohemians were expulsed to after World War II (two). If anyone from there reads this query, I would appreciate hearing from you.
I am more or less related to Sue Gould's ancestor (author of a query on this board) through my great grandfather's brother's daughter, who married Henry Gould. (I had contacted Sue Gould several years ago.)
Again, if anyone is related to this family, either directly or indirectly, please let me know. I will answer whatever questions you might have for this family.
