Thanks for your reply. Going by the given names you give, I'd say our Fritsches are unrelated.

The surname Fritsch comes originally from the given name Frederick. Among Prussian families with noble connections, a von was added before Fritsch. Commoners were not allowed to use this title. The use was strictly controlled by the government. Most Fritsches are/were commoners and there are hundreds of them scattered aound Germany today. I only know that my G granddad said he was born in Prussia. At that time, 1866, Prussia was made up of many states of what is now the eastern part of Germany. 10/27/00
