Would that be George Ditzler who married Catherine Saurbaugh? George is a brother to my 4th great-grandfather John Y. Ditzler. Their brother Samuel also has a living genealogist, Alan Dodds of Texas who married a Jeanne Ditzler, descendant of Samuel. We three family lines have been in contact now for over 10 years. Alan and Jeanne spent years researching original records in Adams Co. PA, and the surrounding counties collecting everything they could on Ditzlers. Before I lost my house and much of my stuff got destroyed or thrown away, I had copies of the most important things like wills.
Yes, I know living descendants of George who have two genealogists among them. The two genealogists' husbands are I think first cousins once-removed to each other.
The David Ditzler in Indianapolis is the husband of one--I've forgotten her name again--she has an email too I need to get--I've lost it again. Her cousin-in-law has a lot of info but I still had copies of that which are in my file on and free on Rootsweb on World Connect.
To find MY file quickly (because I list sources for everything in my file and because of the many royal and non-royal families I descend from/relate to, many people download parts of my file and attach to their own almost alwys without crediting me).
Put in James Vincent Martin Schwing (lived 1926-1997).
That is my father. His wife, my mother is the Ditzler descendant. Her father's mother was Ida Ditzler Stephenson.
Most of what I have (other than census records) on the Ditzlers will be in that file online already.
