Daniel Ratzenberger's (b. early 1800's) descendants
Posted by: Roger Ratzenberger (ID *****0276) Date: June 09, 2002 at 18:03:11

I am researching the Ratzenberger family tree. I have traced my branch back to Daniel Ratzenberger born in Hungary in the early to mid 1800's. His wife’s first name was Barbara b. Hungary.
Their son, Joseph Ratzenberger b. 1850 Hungary moved to Bridgeport Connecticut and married Mary Fekete b. Abt. 1862 Hungary. Their children were: David, Joseph Daniel James Geza, Dezso Sandor, Ilona, William Albert and Lilly. My line lived in Connecticut, mostly in the Bridgeport area.
Joseph Daniel Ratzenberger b. 1884 married Julia Lotsko and their children were William, Joseph Elmer, Elmer Z., Earnest and Daniel R. Joseph Elmer b. 1908 married Julia Orosz. These are my grandparents.
I am trying to further the information on my line. Currently there are approximately 20 families with the surname Ratzenberger listed in the US. I am therefore trying to collect as much information in order to try to determine if and where connections exist. As I understand it now, there appear to be three main branches: a Hungarian branch (to which I clearly connect), a "Sudetenland" branch (a German speaking enclave of Czechoslovakia), and an Austrian branch. Any information on these or any other Ratzenbergers would be appreciated.
