I have just stumbled on to this web site. I am also a Wittekind desendant. My great grandfather Wittekind came to America from Cassel, Germany and settled in Trenton, NJ. I have been able to trace my Wittekind relatives back to the early 1500's.
Like Becky, I too have the book that describes the history of the Wittekind family, it was given to me by my father's cousin who now lives in California. I look forward to corresponding with all of you through this website.
Please let me know if I can help any of you.
