Family Origins and Deepest Root

The family roots have been traced back into the 1700s. The BALTZEL family were from Goenheim, Pfalz, Allemagne. They came around 1710 to the Alsace region of France. The most distant ancestor known is Nikolaus Baltzel who lived in Hunspach, a town located in the French department of Bas-Rhin in Alsace. They moved around in the same county. The family lived in Oberseebach as well as in Soultz sous Forets. Two family members immigration to America.

The Hotel Baltzel

This 1915 postcard shows the beautiful Hotel Baltzel, at the southeast corner of Broad and Pearl. The corner is now the site of a senior citizen housing complex.
