Surname Saturday: 73 - Schmitz

This week begins the thirty-two surnames introduced by my great-great-great-great-grandmothers, my grandparents' grandparents' grandmothers. Except I don't know all thirty-two names. I think I have eight of them, plus the patronymic names of four Swedish g-g-g-g-grandmothers.

Ahnentafel numbers 65 and 67 are in my unexplored Dutch line. 69 and 71 are the mothers of Johan Toemmes and Maria Schmitt of Trassem, Prussia. Trassem is now located in the Trier-Saarburg district in the west of Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany.

Which bring us to number 73, Anna Margaretha Schmitz.

I get the feeling that Schmitz research in Germany will be about as easy as researching my two separate Schmitt lines.

  1. I do not envy you. I have a Schmitz line too and am stuck on it.
