my name is Martin Pytr, I live in Czech Repulic, at Morkov, Moravia.
In Moravia exists village Skaly, former German name was HANGENSTEIN.
Moravia was part of Austrian Empire in 19th century, and Moravian immigrants often proclaimed Austria as their country of origin.
It is possible that your ancestors came from Hangenstein (today Skaly), at Moravia.
Moravia is part of Czech Republic, now. Border areas of the Czech Republic, were inhabitated by German speaking people until 1945. Hangenstein (today Skaly), were also situated at German speaking area of Moravia.
I am a full-time genealogical researcher and if you wish, I can do researching for your ancestors. I started my business 5 years ago and searched for tens of American clients, already. I am ready to check church vital records (birth, wedding, death) of Hangenstein (today Skaly), stored in Regional Archive at Olomouc.
If you will find this idea interesting, let me know, please.
