My earliest known WALTZ ancestors at this point were:

Christianus WALTZ (1742 - 1835)


Barbara MAURER (1757 - 1801)



Christianus & Barbara lived in the little village of Riedseltz, Alsace, France.  (I have created a section of this Web site of the village of Riedseltz.)


Riedseltz, Alsace, Bas-Rhin, France


My research is far from complete on this family, and I welcome any information that you could add.  Please leave a message in the Guest book, or e-mail me from the link on the navigation bar if you have any additional information, photographs, documents, or corrections for this family.


I would like to acknowledge all the helpful folks on the web lists and message boards, but especially: Shawn Clark (who supplied me with my first Waltz breakthrough); the late John Waltz (who connected me with my long-lost Waltz ancestors);  Elizabeth Crans (who shared her extensive Waltz research with me); Marlene Fanton (who shared her research and the portraits of Michael J. & Elizabeth, and hooked me up with Alfaretta Maxwell); and lastly, Alfaretta Maxwell (who through her stories and pictures, has given me a wonderfully clear picture of the life our ancestors led).  I have enjoyed getting to know all my new-found Waltz cousins and appreciate their willingness to share their family history with me.  I look forward to our future collaboration on this project--thank you all.
