Hello,
Perhaps this is useful information. Back in 1974, I dated Doug Witt. He had two siblings, Debbie and Daniel. His Mom name was Donna. His Dad committed suicide in approx. 1973. Everyone moved to Arizona shortly there after. Good luck. Karen

My g-grandfather was Gustav Witt who im from Solek Kujawski,Bydgoszcz (formerly Bergbruch Poznan) in 1881. His parents were Karl and Elizabeth Hoffman Witt im 1884 and lived in Anchor, IL. Gustav and his family moved to Rouchester about 1887 and back to IL. Reason for move not known. Other members of this Witt family moved to Iowa and to Texas besides many in IL. They were devout Lutherans. Any connection?

I am related to the Witts who lived in NY near a small town named Arcade. We lived between Rochester and Buffalo. I am a decendant of Anton Witt and Minna Hess Witt from Prussia. My aunt has done a great deal of research regarding the Witt name and I'd be happy to share any info with you.

Hi everyone,
I have been searching on and off for the children of my deceased grandfather "Chester Witkowski". He lived in Chicago, Illinois up until the early 1940's...then he shorten his name to "Witt" and moved to New York. He still had many brothers and sisters in the Chicagoland area, but as the years went on, they all died. The reason(s) why I am searching out Chet's other children is.....for family health reasons and because my mother was his oldest child and she feels like a part of her has always been "missing". If this story sounds familiar, please contact me directly and I will give you all the info that I have collected to far.

Thanks in advance,
Darlene

I lived in Freedom,NY - near Arcade - and can tell you that Gilbert Witt was married to Kathleen _______; their children were Gilbert, Jr. (now deceased), John, Alan, Martha (married Gary Bray - now living in Arcade) and Nancy. Gilbert, Sr. had died, but I believe Kathleen is still living - and probably still in Freedom.
