The Witzels of Netra - Wabern
long Witzel/Witzell family history can be traced out of Wabern, Uttershausen and Netra in Hesse. These towns are located closely to Vacha.
The first reocrded member of this Netra-Wabern family is Hans Witzel born in 1596. He settlement in Netra sometime before 1639. His place of birth is unknown. His son Henrich is also of Netra.
By 1692, the great-great grandchildren of Hans Witzel are born in Vacha, with Johan Casper Witzel, son of Johann Andreas Witzel. But by 1752, Johan Casper Witzel moves to Wabern to establish a long Witzel line here.
The history of this line is the work of Karl Heinz Witzel. He is the author of a booklet entitled Die Witzels von Wabern. He is also the author of Ortsfamilienbuch Wabern, a modern compilation of the records of old church books and other documents in Wabern. » »
