About the Project

The Wittbrodt Name Study project serves as a collaborative platform to collect information on the Wittbrodt 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 Wittbrodt 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 (England Wittbrodt's), by time period (18th Century Wittbrodt's), or by topic (Wittbrodt DNA, Wittbrodt Occupations, Wittbrodt 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.

Also see the related surnames and surname variants.

I am the great granddaughter of Joseph Friedrich Wittbrodt (1838 - 1900) born in Zarnowitz, West Prussia, Germany; today: Zarnowiec (Puck), Gdansk, Poland. There are more living Wittbrodts, including many great grandchildren and grandchildren who may have other names who may be interested in joining here. Please do!
