The name Simon
Podolski first appeared in Apatin church records in 1817
when his son Simon (b. 1787) married Elisabeth Kretzinger
(b. 1796 Apatin). This first Simon is listed as a
resident of Kupusina but no further information is known of
his or his wife's (Katharina Barbarsky) pre-Kupusina
great-grandson, Simon, is my grandfather.
Seiler was born about 1719 in the Reich (village unknown)
and married his second wife, Anna Maria Stader, in 1759 in
great-granddaughter, Rosina, is my grandmother.
With the help of Ron
Gretz of the DVHH and Josef P. Schwend, Apatin historian, I have
information on many branches of my family as far back as the late
1400's in Baden-Wuttemburg and the mid-1600's in villages in
Lothringen. My goal is to discover where my Podolskis came from
before they settled in Apatin and where in the Reich my Seilers
Besides all of my
Apatin family surnames other early branches of my family settled in
Bacs Brestowatz and Filipowa.
