Great Site! I was so excited to see so many Mathia’s out there. I am the great-grand daughter of Earl William Mathia, would love to hear from anyone who might have info on his family or want to share other Mathia stories. Thanks, Jennifer (Mathia) Spellman, Kansas

My grandparents were Paul and Laura (Linck) Mathia and they lived in Hempstead New York, Long Island. My mothers maiden name was Irene Louise Mathia, and she had six siblings, Laura, Loyola, Charlotte(Polly), Rita, Maria, and Joseph, who I believe lives in Wantagh New York. My grandmother Laura was killed in an auto accident in 1937, I believe, so I never personally met her. Paul Mathia died in the 1970' I believe. My understanding is that my grandparents immigrated from Germany around the turn of the century, and my grandfather still spoke pretty good German when I last spoke with him.

I'm researching Family Organization Web sites to find out what people put on their's and make sure I'm thinking of as much as I can before I get to far into the development of my family's site. I've a host company who's given me 3 free years of 5GBytes of web space for a site, so ...

<strong>Your</strong> site is the best I've looked at so far. And the closest to what I'm thinking of doing.

Thank your for allowing me to view your wonder site.

 By search for the Names of anchestors of mine I found in your pages:

"Maria Rosalia MATHIA was born 1 Sep 6 1872 in Nowa Cerkiew, Chojnice, Westpreußen.
She was christened 1 Sep 8 1872 in Nowa Cerkiew, Chojnice, Westpreußen.

MathiaOrg: 12/28/1999.

** 05/20/2002: Found #0529816, item 1, year 1872, entry 55: baptismal record of MARIA ROSALIA MATHIA, born in Neukirch to JOHANN MATHIA & EVA SIEG, on 09/06/1872. Date of baptism - 09/08/1872; performed by - xxx at Nowa Cerkiew, Kr. Chojnice, West Prussia.

GODPARENTS: Johann Sartowski & Rosalia Pokrzywinska."
These Godparents are surely related to my anchestors, Sartowski Augustinus(*5.5.1831, Nowacerkiew +28.12.1888 Kgl.-Neukirch)
son of Johannes Sartowski and Eva Pzervorska (no dates) , may be a brother or cousin.
Augustinus Sartowski, maried to Rosalie Cichocky(*2.10.1834,Brusy +17.5.1916 Kgl.-Neukirch) is the grandfather of my grandmother.
As I see in your records, the Sartowski family is not directly linked to yours, is she?

best regards

I am not part of your family, but at least some of your ancestors have lived in Schonbruck in Allenstein, Eastprussia in 18 th century, same as mine. As this is a tiny little village, they should as least have known each other.

Dear Family, My brother Kevin Matthia shared this web-site with me as I wanted to prepare a family notebook for our family reunion this summer. This site was a great help in getting information for the folder I want to make for all the children and each couple. I have really enjoyed reading through here and copying things pertaining to our family. My Daddy is Jürgen Matthia, son of Erwin and Esther Matthia, son of Albert and Martha Matthia. I am especially thrilled with the picture of their family. I do not know if you are interested in names and dates for thie children of those you have listed already (such as my siblings and our children?). If so, please feel free to let me know, and I can fill you in. Thank you for sharing the many hours of work that you have put into this family tree with the rest of us. What a blessing. Sincerely, Krischa McKenzie

I was looking through your files and find that there are several ancestors common to your files and mine. My grandmother was Magdeline Dorzyk from Otter Lake, Quebec. Her father was Michael Dorzyk from Gdansk Poland. He married Anna Sweda from Renfrew Ontario. I have traced a relation through John Lepack 1895 - 1954 Husband of Bertha Kluke. This data is on the tombstone in the St. Charles Borromeo RC Church in Otter Lake. I am currently researching the Tate/Tait line of the family but I am only about an hour from Otter Lake by car. Other tombstones include "August Kluk died Jan 8, 1921 Aged 69: Bertha Filskowskee Wife of August Kluk died June 10, 1894 aged 32 years. There were 2 children that died early; Theodore died in infancy and Cecelia died June 30, 1897 aged 10 years. These examplea can all be traced back to my grandmother's line. Please contact me if this is helpful and if I can help you.

Hi ! My husband's name is Antoine Anani Mawuena MATTHIA and he was born in Togo, Africa. His father and mother are still living there but Antoine has been living in Beligum for quite a while and he has now the belgian nationality. Antoine doesn't know much about his father branch so I don't think he could give you any information about it. Do you know of any other MATTHIA coming from Togo ? Best wishes, Isabelle

Hello All! I just recieved the flyer in the mail. I have been interested in my families roots for a long time. My great grandfather, Vincent Mathia Sr (I am the fourth (IV) and my son is fifth (V)) was from Czechoslovakia as was my great grandmother, Doris. I believe they came over in 1918 or 1919. Most of the family now resides in Mogadore, Randolph, and Suffield, Ohio.

Why is there the name MATHIA with two T's in it? I am wondering if you are not looking at the wrong site. I need proof that this is not may families name taken out of text. Remember the S on MATHIAS was added or deleted at the time they went through New York. It was a mistake of the writer at customes in New York when the boats all came over here. So prove to me you are a MATHIA by blood. Not by the lack of knowledge from the past.

Hello I never realized there were so many families with the Mathia name. I have often traveled around the us and looked in the phone directories but never found much of anything. And now it is good to see the name is so big. From the timeI was a child until now I had thought that our family which is very small now was the only Mathia clan in the usa.

Hi, Kurt! I'm related distantly - my dad's cousin's wife was the wife of a Mathia. Her, and my, common ancestors are Herman Carl Hinz, and Albertina Wilhelmina Louisa Augusta (Augusta) Kobs, born in the 1860s. Hopefully someday I can expand on the Hinz/Kobs branch, and share it with others. Very nice page, I have learned a few good techniques for organizing and presenting my information.
