Bilz Family

 

The Bilz families lived in the area surrounding Bernbach, Hessen, Germany. The family name was spelled phonetically in a variety of ways including Bilz, Biltz, Bills, and Beltz among others. The German towns in which they lived and died included Bernbach, Somborn and Altenmittlau. Some of the information is based on the research of a German genealogist hired by descendants in the 1980s. I have spelled each last name as it was predominantly spelled in any records. Conrad Bilz and family immigrated to America in 1836 and settled in Ohio.
