Subject: [BANAT-L] Lutz in the Banat

By the discription it sounds like your "labor certificate book" is a
journymans book listing the places he worked in order to become a master.
As you probably know, Lutz is a common German surname and occurrs frequently
in the Banat. Nevertheless your discription of Lutz, Zivwei and Siller
their destaination and the places worked makes the whole thing smell of
Setschan. Lutz is a common surname in Setschan as well as the other
surnames you list.
I would be willing to put money on this----although not a lot
