Re: Hiltz 2003 Project
I have read your Hiltz 2003 Project, in fact, I copied it about a year ago.I have reason to believe that my family and yours are related.However, I have very little information other than stories told to me as a child.
My Grandfather, George Fredrick Hiltz, was born around Cedar Grove IN.DOB: about 1863, DOD: 1950 in Sheldon, IL.
He use to tell the story about 2 brothers who came over together, parted and never heard of each other again.They came from BADEN-BADEN, (ON THE RHINE) GERMANY.The family was Catholic in Indiana.I found the location out from my Aunt this spring.
Grampa came to Sheldon, married my Gramma, and did not have a close connection to his family in Indiana.
I would enjoy hearing from you, and also in connecting the missing pieces.Thank You.
