Neutuchel (Nowa Tuchola)

Neutuchel (Nowa Tuchola in Polish) is a very small village south of Tuchel; I have a special interest in this village as my great-grandfather August Wilhelm Remus was born here in 1842 to Daniel Remus (born in Zbosse) and Christine Bess (also widow of Michael Bettin from whence he has two half brothers). He was baptized in Tuchel (Tuchola) (Click here to see that church). Click here for August Wilhelm's ancestry shown in family 60 of Martin Remus of Schwente genealogy.

The village is in three parts. One is on near the railroad, one portion is on top of the hill south of Tuchel, and the third portion on a road at the base of the hill. I only saw two of the three parts of the village. The one near the railroad was modern, as it had been thoroughly bombed in the Second World War.

The portion atop the hills looked just perfect for the location of a family of herders (his dad Daniel was a shepherd). I did not see the small third part.

In any case, here are some pictures of the views of Tuchel from Neutuchel atop the hill:
