Well, it has been exciting to discover our 4th g-grandma's family was Cruts, but I can hardly believe the research road I have traveled in the last month or so trying to piece together who this family was. It's quite an adventure! In any case, you can read about it here: Grotz-Crutz-Cruts Families of Early PA-NJ-NY. Please do send me a message with feedback or inquiries.
And in case you're wondering, I'll probably rest awhile before tracking this family back to its German origins!
