Help me find my Hapsburg ancestor.

Hi everyone. I don't know if this is the proper forum to do this on, but here it goes. My grandmother, whose maiden name is Schnee, appears to have a link to the House of Hapsburg. The story is that a person with the name von Teschen eloped with a pauper named Schnee and came to the United States. I can't find her though.
It seems that this guy (Archduke Charles, Duke of Teschen - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) was the first person to have the name von Teschen (It says in another article he became Herzog von Teschen; he was a member of the House of Hapsburg-Lorainne). So now I'm trying to find his descendant who eloped with Mr. Schnee. Help me out here?

York and German nobility connection

I have a 'needle in a haystack' searching task. I'm looking for a connection in the German nobility with the name York. If it exists it would be a female connection in the mid 1800's and maybe a male connection in the late 1700 or early 1800's. The male connection may be in the Saxe Coburg Gotha family. The problem is that I may need a name searchable site as I only know the York names. Any suggestions as to how/where to start would be greatly appreciated.

Tronier royal family in France

My grandmother just told me (she is 93) that her great grandfather was the only one of the royal family spared when the rest of the Tronier males were killed. He was disguised as a peasant and sent to Denmark. Has anyone heard of a royal family by the last name Tronier?

What country did your grandmother say he came from (I'm guessing France, but I could be wrong)?
Also, what was the titles his family held?
Also, what time period are we talking here? About when did your grandmother's great grandfather live?

He was sent to Denmark from France. I am guessing he was from a family that was ruling at the time but not sure of their exact titles. I would have to say the time period may have been some time during the 1800's or maybe even earlier.

Valet-de-Chambres of Emperor Franz Joseph

I believe Alese John Kita was a Valet de Chambre for Emperor Franz Joseph at Schonbrunn Palace in 1894-1895, but I would like to find some documentation of that.

He later married my Great, Great Grandmother, Franciszka Knopaska, after she had two children by Emperor Franz Joseph.

He was born in Austria in 1865 and came to the United States in 1895.

How awesome it would be for my family to find any kind of documentation of his service to Emperor Franz Joseph.

Please send suggestons.

I'm trying to find information on my ancestor Benjamin Lipka(b~1791 d. 1851). According to documents passed down from the family he was descendant of the Kustos von Zubri und Lipka nobility.(or Kustosch Zubry depending on spelling). Supposedly they were Counts and Nobles from Bohemia and protectors of the bison. The letters state the family had castles in Prague and Vienna. Letters we have say his parents were killed at the Siege of Danzig and he was orphaned and had to abandon his family's properties and flee to Warsaw and change his last name to Lipkau. Is there any way for me to find out if this story is true? Is there still a family that uses the Kustos von Zubri und Lipka title? Many of the documents I have are from the Archives of Nobility in Paris. Benjamin's son Theodore de Lipkau commissioned these records that detail the different titles given to the Kustos von Zubri und Lipka ancestors throughout time, but don't talk specifically about Benjamin or his parents. Thank you so much!

Stewarts and Sheffields

I had no idea when I started doing what I thought would be a simple family tree, I'd find such a shocking and interesting history on both mine and my husband's sides. They may be flights of fancy that go absolutely nowhere, but I'm trying to figure out where several of the branches lead to. While the pieces seem to fit, I keep checking and rechecking to actually try to debunk my own findings. So far, I keep following the same trail. It's been frustrating If there are any other Stewart or Sheffield descendants of America hanging around, it would be nice to compare notes to see if you are just as confused as I am.

I put our family website in my profile if it interests anyone.

Possible Irish Royal Lineage?

My family's surname is Paterson. I am trying to find out how to trace my family back to find out if in fact, the stories I've heard all my life are true, that my ancestors were royals in Ireland. My maiden name is Barclay however the line goes back and is Patersons from Ireland in the 600's.

Would anyone know the identity of this lady? She may have been French and is thought to have been of the blood royal - English/German or French. There is a passing resemblance to Princess Louise Marie Adelaide Eugenie d'Orleans. What do you think experts? The dress/turban suggests c.1802. The candid nature of the portraiture suggests a continental painter - Southern Europe or NW France.

P.S. Please note what appears to be a pearl head-dress under the turban.

Linda Vanessa - The von Schwanburg family were Czech/Hungarian nobility descended from an ancient royal line. The current Baron von Schwanburg lives in the UK as a private citizen. His father was a Hungarian patriot and a leader of the Hungarian resistance against the Nazis. I hope this helps. The family name seems close enough.

Genealogy Research


I'm doing some more research and need some help gathering info. on my ggg grandmother. Her name was Mathilde Gusmann.
I have church records that state she and her father, Daniel Gusmann came from Wirschkowitz, Militisch, Prussia. The records are from 1850.
They do not mention if that was her birth place, date of birth, or her mothers name, She was 22 yrs. old at the time of records.
The current name of the town is Wierzchowice,Poland. It is about 70 kl. from Wroclaw, Poland.

I'm trying to find some one who can search the records for me over there so I can obtain the needed material.

Please contact me if you can help.

An Odd Case Needs a Mentor and Advisor

Hello Everyone,

Thank you very much for your time. I am here on this forum to both build relationships and to garner help in my genealogical pursuits. I believe my case is one that genealogists would enjoy evaluating. It is quite well documented, but it provides it's own challenges.

I come from a very distinguished male line whose true heritage is in itself another mystery. Our crest conveys leadership and royalty. No less than 4 major royal families have married into my direct male line.

The houses that I draw lineage from are the Habsburg, de Clare, Ogilvy, Drake, Spofford, McAlister, Webber, and more. I am finding it difficult because my relationships are all being "buggered" as the software that I am using does not calculate multiple relationships. I want to assume that a few of you here have the same problem.

I am looking for someone to browse my tree. I would like some feedback on what I have compiled. I would like to hear if I am a bizarre case, or if there are many like me.

Thank You
