ALL Canatseys are related. The Kanatzer/ Knoertzer/Knortzer/Conatser/Connatser/Cornatser/Kritzer/Critser/Knetzer/Knatzer/ Knitzer/Kannitzer/Conaster/Kanatzar/Canatseys descend from Killian Knortzer of Baden,Germany, but only the bunch that settled for a time in Adair County between 1790 and 1810 and were raised by Barbary Neat Knetzer after the death of George in 1816 changed to Canatsey.There are a lot of Georges. I am trying to put together a complete Canatsey history. Can you send names,dates,places of your branch to David Daniel P.O.Box 27335,Los Angeles, Ca 90027? When I am finished I will send you a free copy. Thanks.
