I stumbled upon this genealogy page. Until now I have never heard of anyone with the same surname GARTZ other than my own family. I'd be interested in hearing from anyone who thinks they might be related. Originally the GARTZ family settled in Waldersee, Manitoba, near Plumice and Niverville. My grandfather eventually moved to Weyburn, Saskatchewan. He had several brothers, but we know nothing about them or where they ended up. My grandfather's name was Ludwig or Louis Gartz and he died in the 1950s. My father is the only son. Along with my brother and sister, we are the only members of our generation with the GARTZ surname. We all grew up in Weyburn. I am 23 years old and in Winnipeg working on my Master of Architecture degree.
