Dedicated to locating and bringing together
the descendants of Johannes Bitler


Johannes Bitler was a German immigrant to colonial America. Around 1736, he arrived at the Port of Philadelphia onboard the ship "Harle." He married and moved to Robeson Township, Berks County in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to established his homestead. In close to 300 years, his family has grown and spread throughout the United States.  We dedicate this project to our ancestors who have been a part of the fabric of American life.

The main tree was updated to add 225 newly-found descendants since my last update in August. This, just in time for the Christmas family gatherings, etc. Many more Pennsylvania Death Certificates, which I am still going through hundreds of -- I"m up to 1930 now. I've added quite a few new images of documents, tombstones, etc. -Glenn
