I am new to this site and I am looking for help in obtaining records for;

My great grandfather Anton Mayer (29 Jun 1876 - 1937) was from Sartscha (Ger.?) Sutjeska, Cytjecka, Serbia
He was married to Klara Stumpf (25 Feb 1882  - 1940) also from Sartscha.

Anton's father Georg Mayer was from Karlsdorf (Ger.?) Banaski, Karlovac, Serbia. His birth date is unk and could be any  where from 1837 to 1855. His immigration record from 7 Apr 1905 states he was 50. The 1910 Census states he is 73, which would make his birth data 1837.
His wife was K/Catharina Dekorsi from Stefansfeld?? (Ger.?) Krajisnik, Serbia Her birthday might be 1838?

Another town of interest would be Lazafeld (Ger.?) Lazarevo, Serbia

They all migrated to North Dakota and eventually to Milwaukee, WI

I have a dna match (MyHeritage) with a Johann Hess from Germany who also has a link to the Dekorsi name. But I have not been able to connect the dots with his family tree to my family tree.


Any help would be greatly appreciated.
