I have been searching for the hometown in Germany of John Walz of South Bend, Indiana who was born in 1836 and arrived in this country in 1854. He married Sophie Mainer of South Bend in 1860. Recently, I have been looking at the records of the Johanneskirche in Wannweil, Germany, in the old kingdom of Wuerttemberg, which contains the names of several families names Walz. I wonder if any Walzes in this forum trace their ancestry back to this village? If they do, I would love to hear from them.
