Starting Sept. 30, 2014, Genealogy.com will be making a big change. GenForum
message boards, Family Tree Maker homepages, and the most popular articles
will be preserved in a read-only format, while several other features will
no longer be available, including member subscriptions and the Shop.
I'm also descended from Johann Michael Kitch, through Martin Kitch. He died while getting ready for the funeral of his lifelong best friend, Weis. (Sorry, forget the first name for now.) I have a fair amount of info on them, but I'm still trying to get where he came from in Germany. A telephone directory search shows three concentrations (one much heavier than the other) using the names KITCH / KITSCH / KIETSCH.
