Hi, my name is Manfred Mietz, I am German, and I am living since 1983 Belgium.
Since a few years I am interested in genealogy.
This page was created to help other and me in their Quest for their ancestors.
Until proven otherwise, I believe that Mietz and Meitz have the same roots.
Maybe there was only a switch made in the past.
I know of two brother is the VS, one writes his name Mietz and the other Meitz, so I believe that the same could have happened also in Germany.
It is believed, that the name Mietz has derived from the polish name Miecz, (which means spear, I think ) and that the bearer of these spears have been participating in the Crusades of Jerusalem and when they came home, the called themselves Miecz.
The earliest mentioning, of a Mietz, is Andreas Mietz, in 1444, from Saxony.
Due to a lot of help, and time investment of friends and families, I was able to create this humble site.
I Thank You All
Have fun !!!!
