I have two websites with information about the Mohelnitzky family, including Ruskauff/Freker and Fastner/Niga/Hany.

I'm happy to share what I have with anyone who is interested.

I'm also looking for old family photos, postcards, letters, or anything else pertaining to these families.

Germany's phone book is listing MOHELNICKY.

Have you traced your RUSKAUFF ancestor? Most of the time our first ancestors married within same region, religion (with few exceptions) but for sure one common language to communicate in.

Surnames: Mohelnitzky / Mohelnicky, Ruskauff
Thanks for the info. I did find out that every Mohelnicky in the German phone book are all from the same family. The eldest was born in Märisch Ostrau in Czech Republic. Someone had told this person that the name Mohelnicky was possibly Hungarian, about 500 years ago, because of the "y" on the end.

I've traced the Ruskauff family to the early 1800's to the town Bissendorf in Kreis (county) Osnabrueck in the state of Niedersachsen, Germany. One group went to Holland, another group went to America.

My Mohelnitzky and Ruskauff great-great-grandparents found each other in Wisconsin where they married in 1872 in Richland County.

I have sent you an e-mail off the board.

The SKY, CKY is Czech and Slovak meaning that the surname is originated from a town by that name. SKI is Polish.
Hungarian " i " means from and " y " means of.
Mohelnice is in Slavic language not Hungarian.
Even if they met in "new land" their ancestral villages could be within 10 miles radius.
