I'm researching my ancestors from Bavaria, and today found their marriage record as well as a few baptism records for their children. On all of the American records, the name is John Witman, but in these church records it's Johann (or Johannes) Widmann. It's a German church, though the records are written in Latin.
I'm trying to find more information on him in Germany, is it safer to search for Widmann or Witmann? Or just keep looking with both spellings?
