My grandfather's name was Charles Wittel, but I'm sure that my grandfather is not your Great Grandfather. (his wife, my grandmother was Mildred Karge)
Perhaps there may be some relation?I'm trying to find the link between the Wittels' in all the different parts of the country.I was always told by my grandparents that with the same spelling "Wittel" there is probably some relation.
Our Wittel family is all from Newark New Jersey and I can trace back to my GreatGrandfather to the late 1800's, although I'm not sure of his name.I'm not really sure if he was born here or if he came here from Germany.He had two sons and a daughter (one was my grandfateher Charles, the other son and the daughter did not have children - that I know of).My grandparents had 5 sons (one is my father)and 2 daughters. Theses sons had 5 sons between them (me, my brother and male cousins).
Anyway, if you know of any kind of connection to the "puzzle", please reply.
