Hi Judy! My name is Judy (Hitz) Eisenhauer. I was looking at genealogy.com and found your post from 2001. I am not from Illinois. I am from Pennsylvania. My father's name is Paul. I tried to trace my family history a few years ago but didn't get very far. I would like to start it again. My granadparents were Ammon and Leah and my great grandparents were George and Anna. I don't know if that helps you. My family is very big and we all live in the area. I was tickled to find Hitz's in Illinois.
I am going to look around this web site and see if I can track my Hitz family in PA.
