About the Project

The Hartzell Name Study project serves as a collaborative platform to collect information on the Hartzell name. The hope is that other researchers like you will join the study to help make it a valuable reference point for other genealogists who are researching or have an interest in the Hartzell name.

As a One Name Study, this project is not limited to persons who are related biologically. Individual studies can be used to branch out the research into specific methods and areas of interest, such as geographically (Pennsylvania Hartzells), by time period (18th Century Hartzells), or by topic (Hartzell DNA, Hartzell Occupations, Hartzell Statistics). These studies may also include a number of family branches which have no immediate link with each other. Some researchers may even be motivated to go beyond the profile identification and research stage to compile fully sourced, single-family histories of some of the families they discover through this name study project.

  • TC Duran - I am interested in creating the most accurate Heinrich Herzel, Hertzel line possible. Some of his descendants (in Pennsylvania, United States) altered the name to Hartzell, in the 1700s.
  • PE Rosner - Descended from many Hartzell (Hertzels).

Related Surnames and Surname Variants
