Hallo G|nther,

I'm sorry, the only information I have on Johannes GUT is that he married
Maria GUZIC and had a child named Stanislaw GUT who was born 1 July 1860.
I don't know if he was Catholic or not, but my grandparents were, so their
parents probably were, too.  I would very much like to have more
information on Johannes myself, but I don't have a birthplace for him or
any other information.

The only hint I have is that on the information I got, someone had written
"KRUL" next to Maria GUZIC's name.  I don't know if that is a name, a
word, or what.

Do you think that someone born in Galacia during the time it was the
Austro-Hungarian Empire would have been considered an Austrian citizen?
If so, maybe there are other records.  My grandmother, Maria HAMMER, was
born in Galacia, but I don't know abut Johannes GUT.
