This site is maintained by Joseph Martin Zellner, the son of George Joseph Zellner, Jr. and Rita Anne Ehrhardt, husband of Gianna (Bortolotti) Reilly. I have been researching family history since 1997. Primary surnames include BIPPUS, BORTOLOTTI, CANCEL, EHRHARDT, EICHENLAUB, ENGERT, FRITZMANN, FUHRMAN, FUß (FUSS, FUHS), GUADALUPE, GOETZ, GRIMM, HARNISHFEGER (HARNISCHFEGER), HESS, KELLER, MAGER, MEY, MONTAG, SCHÖFFEL (SCHAEFFEL, SCHEFFEL), SEIKEL, SIMON, STEETS (STEETZ, STETTS), VOLLMER, WEGMANN, and ZELLNER (ZÖELLNER).

Regions include Switzerland, Germany (Baden-Württemberg, Bavaria, Hesse, and Rhineland-Palatinate), Italy (Vistrorio and Vidracco, Turin, Piedmont area), New Jersey (Primarily Essex and Union Counties), Illinois (Cook County), Pennsylvania (Allegheny and Westmoreland Counties), and Puerto Rico (Barceloneta). Much of my German research centers on the villages of Zepfenhan and Neukirch in the former Kingdom of Württemberg, and Gossersweiler-Stein in Rhineland-Palatinate.

If you have any questions, comments or would like to share research, please contact me. I look forward to hearing from you, but a caveat: although I do my best to keep up with genealogy e-mail, it is a hobby, and real life often gets in the way. It may be days, weeks, or even months before I manage to get back to you. I apologize in advance if that happens!


Although I have never heard of an instance of identity theft that resulted from a genealogy Web site, I respect every individual's right to privacy, and try to conform to "best practices" standards for the protection of personal information.

No private information, including birth dates and photographs, on individuals known or likely to be living is intentionally made available to the public via this Web site. Registered users (generally, family members who are included or will soon be included in the genealogy database) do have access to this information.

If by chance you find personal information on this site that you feel should be removed, please let me know.
