Re: Gansz - Phila. region

I am not sure if yours is the same Gans as mine (mine has no "z"), but I also trace back to a George Gans from Germany from the Philadelphia region. Mine was a George Joseph Gans, naturalized in PA in 1866. He was born about 1843 in Germany. This is all I know. He also had a son named George Joseph, born in 1879.
I'm just curious to see if we are talking about the same George!
