Matthias Schulz was my Great Grandfather.  I found this from a website containing a "blue book" of pianos.  I am thinking of building a website about the pianos since there isn't a lot of information about them.



My family had one of the baby grand pianos and one of the uprights.  A cousin has the baby grand and my brother has the upright.



I am curious to know how many of the pianos are still in existance.

I have an M. Schultz upright piano, Ser# 148970.

It came with my house, in Florida.  I'm interested in its' geneology and restoration, and seeking documentation for the piano.

I have an M. Schultz upright grand piano, Ser# 16698.  It is a family heirloom handed down 3 generations now and purchased by my great grandmother.  I am about to have it restored.  I would love to know if you have more information now or a web site to understand its history better, as I will be passing it down to my niece and nephew to enjoy.



I am also in desperate need of a professional expert appraiser for this piano.  If you have any suggestions, please let me know.
