I am trying to located any relatives of Gene Widmer. He was Hit by a car and killed on 2/27/2003. He was from Ohio, and came to Florida 25 or 30 Years ago. He told us at one time that he did not know where where his family was but that he had had children and grandchildren. I was divorced from his wife. He would have been 80 years old this next may.Anyone having any info. Please contact me, as we are trying to find relatives. Thank you very much

Gene Widmer was my uncle. He was my father's brother and basically was the black sheep of the family. Thus you can imagine my surprise to see his name pop up. I have some (limited) information on his two sons and his first wife and can fill you in on details concerning his parents and siblings, and of course the Widmers go back through 1850 in Ohio and then back to Switzerland. I suggest you contact me through Member Connections and we can exchange email addresses. I have pictures and some interesting newspaper clippings you will want to see.

Greetings jwidmer,
I assume from your user name that you are a male Widmer whose line emigrated from Switzerland about 1850. Very cool. My line was exiled from Switzerland in 1671, and eventually came to the US in 1717.
Have you considered getting your DNA tested for genealogical purposes? I'd love to know if our families might be related.
I have had mine done with familytreedna.com, where we have a "whitmore" project. This is intended to cover whitmer/whitmore/wetmore/widmer/witmer etc.
Keep in touch in any case!
Chuck
