In Reply to: Re: METZ TO METS TO METTS by Stan Metts of 972

My father was born will metze in 1906. When he started school in 1912, the teachers "americanized" the german spelling of metze/metz to the spelling metts. Teachers/census takers also "americanized the spelling of one of my grandfathers from fuellmer to the spelling fulmer. I am researching my father's line and have found that you need to look closely at all the spellings of metts re: metz/metze/mets/metts/meetze
