I am doing research on Joseph Sakatsitz (How his name shows up on several forms in the US from 1901 into the 30s when he shortened to Saks. I did see an early spelling Sakasits as well. I know he came from Burgerland which in 1901 was Hungarian territory at the time. I see some alternative spellings like Szokatsis, Sczaczs too. Anyway, trying to figure out where the family came from. Looks like Josephs parents are Stephan and Anna probably from Ubersdorf Austria. I don’t think our name is German. With a bit of research it must be either Hungarian, maybe Polish, or maybe Croatian?
