Re: Portig nz
For several years I am completing the full Portig-Portich-Portych tree.
Now very briefly:
I am living in Poland, today you can meet here PORTYCHs only but I have many PORTIGs and PORTICHs in my files.
PORTIGs came from Saxon territory to Bohemia (today Czech Republic) in about 18th century (I have contact with some Czech archives to search for them there) and in 1820's several PORTIGs (or PORTICHs) came from Bohemia to Ksawerow and Lodz. family grew really much and in beginning of 20th cent some of them emigrated to Brazil, Germany and to Latvia others stayed in Poland mainly in Lodz. During WWII Latvian branch migrated to Germany.
I can exchange all the information (data, scanned documents, pictures) I have.
