I am researching my grandmother and I have been unable to get one hit for her last name, sometimes spelled Matymish or Matymitz. The uncles couldn't agree, I guess. Anyone out there have any information?

Michal,
My grandmother had a brother named Isaac who left Banilov for Czeckoslovakia and I have been searching for him for many years. I am sure that we are related. The name is so unusual. Where do you live now? I live in Toronto. Please email me directly at gaildarling2001@yahoo.ca
