    great last name, i’d say.  what do you know about your family hitrosy.  My grandfather, John F. Trotz, came to USA in 1890 s and, after briefly settling in Detroit, where his older brother Michael lived, came to Scranton, Pa. for a wedding, met my grandmother, and stayed.  Like hundreds of others from his former hometown in Poland, Suwalki, he became a coal miner.  He was killed in the mines when he was 40, leaving my grandmother with six kids at the height of the Depression in 1929.  My father, Edward Trotz, was 3 at the time.  I ran Trotz through the Twitter search engine and found your name.  You are following me, too.  I am 54 and live in Baltimore, where my father moved looking for work after being discharged from the Army Air Corps after the war.  My Dad will be 83 on Nov. 26.  He named me after his father, and my son is named after my father.  I also have two daughters .Sincerely, John Trotz
