Rick Spilly: Tatter, Szepes Megye
I am researching the Tatters of Lubica/Kesmark/Kezmarok, formerly Szepes Megye, currently in the Slovak Republic.
Tatters were merchants in the town and had married into the Polish nobility, family name Paulovics.
I cannot find any evidence of any Tatters still there, but not all the Germans were expelled from Kezmarok, because they still do a German church service there. Surely some of our relatives stayed behind--they were very devout reformed/lutheran/baptist and I do not think supported the Nazis, due to their religious beliefs.

RickSpilly: Tatter--Kesmark, Magyarul
Szia mindenki:

Lehet talalni a neve "Tatter", karpati nemet (svab) csalad volt Kesmarkan keso 19th c. es eloszo 14th vagy 15th szazad. A Tatterok voltnek uzletemberek es a Tatter Lajos elso 19. szazad, a felesege, Lengyeli nemes volt, a neve Paulovics Amalie.

Sajnos beszelek csak egy kicsit magyarul, de most tanulok es magyarul a nyelv nagyon nehe'z tanulni, de nagyon erdekes is.

Udvozlettel:

It is possible that the surname TATTER only exists in a female line or it was Slovakonized. No listing for TATER or TATTER in SK's phone site : www.zoznamst.sk

Dear Zlatica:

Isn't there some way of contacting the Slovak archivists, paying a fee and getting a tree generated? Will this tell me if relatives are still there? Will they do this also for a German ethnic family in Slovakia, or only if they were Slovak? Or is Hungary also the place to get this done, since this area was administered by the Hungarian Crown in the 19th c.?

Thanks for your help.

Zlatica : Re: Tatter, Szepes Megye
Ahoj Rick,

Yes, you can send a request to the archive or you can hire a researcher to do the research for you. Another or is that you can order the church records that the LDS-Mormons (Family History Center) have filmed and gather the ancestral information yourself.
Those records would not tell you if the family is still there. To find some relatives you could send a letter to the mayor of a town or send out few letters to the town.
www.zoznamst.sk SK's phone site but no Tatter or Tater in the phone book. They might have a cell phone and thus no house phone.

I do not know Magyar but I recognize the surnames.
The area code 52, which includes town of Kezmarok, is listing a surname LENGYEL and PAVLOVIC'.
Is Karoline and Samuel TATTER that passed thru EI related to your ancestor?
They are the only two that are from Kezmarok.
It is possible that your Tatters came to Kezmarok from someplace else.
Samuel from Kezmarok was traveling with Maria DEMKO and going to an uncle John Demko. Is the surname Demko in your family tree? There is a listing in Kezmarok's phone book for Demkova (female).

Zlatica:

Thanks very much for your assistance!

The records we have on the Tatters are inscriptions from the family bible. These are, in their entirety from that region:

Samuel Tatter b. 1830, married Julia ?. Samuel died 1896. Not sure where he was born, but most likely, Lu'bica.

Ludwig Tatter born 1853 Leibic (Lu'bica); wife Amalie Paulovics born 1855 Kesmark. Lu'bica is a small town adjacent to Kesmark. Ludwig was a merchant sellling bibles throughout historic Hungary: Felvidek (Slovakia), Karpatalja, Erdely (Transylvania) and Budapest.

Gustav Tatter b. 1880, Kesmark. (came to USA early 20th c.)

Helen Tatter b . 1878, Kesmark (married George Leffanty) says she came to USA but later--1930's.

Also, not from bible: Johann Tatter, 1830's, born Lu'bica: listed on Baptist Church site as the first Anabaptist in the Felvidek. We don't have definite confirmation on his being a family member, but surname and location is the same. All of the Tatters were Baptists from Ludwig on and probably before (or Lutheran possibly). I met an American minister at the Baptist church there, but he was new and did not know where the records were. He was aware that there were still Germans in his congregation, and he was who told me that the Lutheran church still says one service in German. I should probably write to him, but I lost his name and contact information!

"Lengyel" is not a surname in our family (although I do realize it can be a surname), what I meant to say was that Amalie Paulovics was from the "Polish Nobility" ("Lengyeli nemes" in Hungarian).

I'm curious, where did you get the info on the other "Samuel"?

I am also quite excited, odds are the "Palovic'" listing is probably a relative!

Thanks,

Rick Spilly

Your welcome. My mistake on the surname Lengyel.

The Samuel and Katerina TATTER passed thru Ellis Island.
You might try the archive in town of Levoca for the church records.

Dobrý deň,
všetci 4 bratia Tatterovci (Johann, Samuel, Ludwig a Gustav), ktorých na internete spomínate, pochádzali z Ľubice pri Kežmarku (správna adresa Ľubica, okres Kežmarok). Boli to etnickí Nemci. Najprv patrili do evanjelickej luteránskej cirkvi v Ľubici. Neskôr odišli za prácou (remeslo montéri železa) do Budapešti, kde prišli do styku s baptistami, kostol Baptistengemeinde, Wesselényi ulica, nemecký pastor Heinrich Meyer. Johann Tatter ako 30-ročný bol prvý pokrstený baptista zo Slovenska - Uhorska v r. 1875 v rieke Dunaj. Stal sa kolpoltérom a tiež tlmočníkom pastora Heinricha Meyera pri jeho cestách do Kežmarku a Popradu. V r. 1902 Johann a Samuel Tatterovci slúžili - kázali Božím Slovom v Baptistengemeinde Kežmarok 2 roky, lebo zbor v Kežmarku bol bez kazateľa. Všetci štyria bratia Tatterovci boli asi od r. 1876 aj s manželkami baptistickí kolpoltéri - rozširovatelia Biblií a kresťanskej literatúry na Slovensku, Johann Tatter aj v Bratislave a potom Budapešti a Gustav Tatter v Koložvári v Rumunsku. O ich príbuzných neviem.
