I have traced my father's line as far back as embarkation on a ship from Hamburg. On the manifest they spelled his name Hordich and listed his residence as Czeslawitz, Posen. I can't seem to go any further back as I'm sure the name has been continuously mispelled.
I've got multiple New York Census documents listing Germany and Bohemia as countries of Origins which is understandable considering the borders of Poland/Germany/Czech Republic have been redrawn more times than history can keep count.
There are Hordych's currently listed in Germany. But I can't find any in Poland. I did find a Hordych in one registry in Dachau with Polish listed as the nationality.
Other Heritage experts have traced the name to the Netherlands with the original spelling as Hordyk.
ANY help to push me in the right direction would be much appreciated!
