Hi Maresli,
Since I posted that message, a relative that lives in German and visits Bohemia twice a year or so, went to the Trebon Archives with a Czech friend. Armed with information as to the birthplace of Ignatz Wolf that I found on a birth certificate of one of his son's born in Oshkosh, WI, they were able to trace the family back the early 1800's.

Ignatz Wolf b. 1864 (my ggrandfather) was the son of Martin Wolf (farmer in Mehregarten Nr 3) and Paulina Stogbauer (two dots over the o)daughter of Ignatz Stogbauer (farmer in Schwarzhaid Nr.2) and Mariana (born Jungwirth in Schindlau).

Martin Wolf b. 1825 was the son of Ignacz Wolf (small farmer in Mehregarten) and Anna Maria (daughter of Anton Zach (small farmer in Kubohutten Nr. 4) and Marie (born Kurz in Kubohutten Nr. 1.) Witness Josef Stegbauer (small farmer in Neugabau Nr. 7.) (Zach's married into the Friedberger family also - so I would be related to them through both lines)

Paulina Stegbauer Wolf b 1832 was the daughter of Ignatz Stegbauer (small farmer in Schwarzhaid Nr. 2 * ) and Maria Anna (born Jungwirth ** )

* [Ignatz was the son of Mathias Stegbauer (auszugler in Schwarzhaid Nr. 2.) and Theresia (born Kuplent of Kaltenbach)]

** [Maria Anna was the daughter of Andreas Jungwirth (small farmer in Schindlau Nr. 6) and Barbora (born Paulik in Mittenberg Nr. 5.)]

I have a family history from the Friedberger family (Maria married my ggrandfather Ignatz Wolf) nad it has excerpts from other books. It lists Gansauerhaid (wher Maria was born) with 6 houses and 37 residents. Mehregarten with 18 houses and 126 residents and Seehaid with 20 houses and 164 residents in 1910.

There is also a map that seems to be from about the time period - listing 19 houses in Mehregarten - resident in House #14 is listed as Karl Wolf and the resident in 18 is listed as Alois Wolf. Sadly there is no map for Seehaid. But in Gansauerhaid had ran right up to Mehrgarten has a Alexander Saiko as resident of Nr. 8. From what I can read of it (it is in German and I only 'hunt and peck' German) the children from Gansauerhaid, Mehregarten, Ferchenhaid, Seehaid nad Schwarzhaid attended a school located between mehregarten and Ferchenhaid. I believe I have a recent photograph of the school.

See if you find a match in any of this.
