Do you know anything about Niemetz's in the Pittsburgh, PA area? I think they moved here from Germany around the turn of the century.

Thank you for the information about your family. My family actually spells their name Neimetz. When I look over old records, I find that it was spelled many different ways. I am wondering if the "Neimetz's, Niemetz's , Nimitz's , Nimietz's " came from the same part of the world. Do you have any clue?
