The name 'Gartner' is obviously quite common. For example, the 1902 city directory for Vienna Austria lists about seventy different families (none of which are mine).For the past thirty years, I have been extensively researching the Gartner ancestry in villages near Flieden, Kreis Fulda, in Hessen, Germany. These ancestors came from villages such as Rommerz, Ruckers, Flieden, Magdlos, Weiperz, Veitsteinbach-Kiliansberg and other nearby hamlets too numerous to mention. The immigrants settled in the area of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, with a few in nearby Fulda, Ohio and Wheeling, West Virginia.If you have any connections to the Gartner family from the Flieden area of Hessen, I would be happy to hear from you, look for connections, and offer suggestions. Best of luck to you in your research.
