Butz

From One Butz to Many

My great-grandfather was Karl Butz and there was very little I knew about his father, Karl Heinrich Butz other than that he lived with his son in Böhmen and died there. All my mother could tell me is that he was apparently from Krefeld in north-west Germany. I found a clipping from a newspaper in the town that he died, which confirmed this and gave me a rough birth date.
