|This genealogy is brief as there
truly are few with this surname as spelled above. What you will find here
is a compilation of what I have been able to gather from various sources,
both through public records and through stories passed down. Unless a
source is sited, public records have not been used to confirm the

researching the name. Pictures have been included, but must be
clicked-on to enlarge. Some will take some time to load because of the
The Dundatscheck Line
No citizenship papers have been found for Paul, and he may never actually have became a citizen of the US. He did work in a restaurant for a while before he succumbed to Tuberculosis in the early 1920's.
While Paul was in the US he met a woman who took on the Dundatscheck surname for herself and her two children. She didn't marry Paul. Her name was Louisa Sawyer. Her children: Hans (Richard) born March 9, 1904, died July 1977 ( Social Security Files) and Louis born January 14, 1903, died November 1984 (Social Security Files) were born before Louisa met Paul.
Paul's son Eric Paul Dundatscheck married very early. In order to do this he used the assumed name of Frank Bates on his marriage license. He married Alice Bey on Feb. 19, 1915. This caused a great deal of trouble for the children, as the father is listed as Frank Bates on the birth certificates. The four children are Ethel Alice Mary, Louise, Eric Paul and Ronald.
Louisa and her two sons.
