This homepage is a global forum for all Bonitz family members or related persons to the various Bonitz families worldwide. It is also intended for those who are interested in the genealogy of the Bonitz families.
This site offers, among others, a listing of all known Bonitz family members, as well as information about the origin and today's whereabouts of different Bonitz families.
There are also numerous links available to global occurrences of the Bonitz surname.
The oldest known Bonitz families are from Germany. They have their roots either in Saxony and the ore mountains, or they come from Zellerfeld in the Harz mountains. Besides these main lines, there are other families whose origins are not clear yet. In recent centuries, some individuals of almost every Bonitz family branch emmigrated to the U.S.
Most of today's Bonitz families in the USA are linked to these German immigrants.
But there is one other Bonitz line in the U.S. whose last name is derived from the Italian family name "Abbonizzio".
This project shall also include all similar forms like Boniz, Bönitz, or Ponitz as long as any connection to an existing Bonitz lineage can be found.
