> Question: Are Ecka, Mala Ecka, and Deutsch-Etschka, (among the many

> In the Setschan records so kindly provided to me, My grandmother was

> So I figure the family came to Setschan after her birth in 1898.
> Great-grandma stayed behind and then came? Too many possibilities.
> But I don't have a clue where to look. There were some Tills in
> Deutsch-Etschka, but not her family as far I can tell.
> So where do I go from here?
