I'm looking to contact descendents of my g3uncle, Georg Heitzman, who married Philipina Wasmund.The family settled in Syracuse (Onondaga Co) NY in the late 1850's. Here are other details I can provide, based on Census records, Georg's will, and Syracuse City Directory listings.Every year, in every document, the names of George’s wife and daughter are spelled differently, owing to varying levels of literacy in the family. Thanks, Bob Heitzman
