To be ignorant of what occurred before you were born is to remain perpetually a child. For what is the worth of a human life unless it is woven into the life of our ancestors by the records of history?

Mystery Monday: Nathan Sadick

Please forgive me, I am having a terrible time trying to save these newspaper articles to my desktop to get them here. So I have resorted to doing a screen shot of them, which of course then makes the quality of the newspaper article terrible so of course you can not read it what so ever. But I will carry on with my quest but also transcribe what they say so you can see.

Toady's mystery is none other than Nathan Sadick of course! As I mentioned in my last post I have come across several newspaper articles spanning from January 1922 - February 1935 about Nathan having court dates? I am rather confused by it all (hence the mystery).

I have asked cousin Lynda if she knew anything, but she didn't. I think it might have to do with Nathan's business? Probably not. I will most likely never know exactly, maybe I will. Who knows.

As you can see I circled where Nathan is in the paper andddd his last name is spelled Sadek! WTH!! Head meet desk please. Any road, this is what it says:

"Court Proceedings
Monroe County

Calendar For To-Day"

Further down where I have circled it then says

"Stephen Rauber vs Nathan Sadek and ano-- Jas M E O'Grady for plff"

This was Saturday, January 14, 1922

This was from Monday, February 25, 1935

This one is also harder for me to understand because I just don't know! I believe Nathan's information is under "City Court"

Again I have circled where his name appears and it says:

"Nathan Sadick v Jacob Kowal"

Anyone got any ideas? I have the actual links to the articles if anyone would like to see if they can crack these codes or find more information. I will keep trying, but I am getting no where fast with it all unfortunately. 



  1. I don't know where you are or if you are near the courthouses in question, but you should be able to get the court records. Genealogical libraries might have them too. Some libraries even have chancery causes online in digital format.

  2. Thanks Wendy I never tought of that, may just have to take some time off from work to go down there to see what I can dig up!
