The Obits(Opitz) family history

Updated February 13, 2004

About Our Family Research

My name is Wallace Obits of Spring Lake, MI. I have researched the family history from my gfather Frederick Obits who immigrated from Saxony to the U.S. He married Elizabeth Smith(Schmidt) in 1862 in Wilmot Ohio. The Schmidt family had immigrated from Canton Bern Sw. I believe my gfather came from the Chemnitz,Mitwalda,Zwickau area of Saxony but have no official confirmation. I believe there were several Opitz families in this area of Saxony and may have been related. My gfather was born Sept 1840 and would have been Friedrich or similar. I am searching for anyone who may have an Opitz family history from this area of Saxony.
