Bio and Links
Bio Photo San Dimas, California -- I am documenting our Pittman line genealogy with the passing of my father. My mother and father gathered lots of misc. info over 50 years.

I manage a German "Pittman Lines" site on, with tree lines back up to 815 years, but am now seeking information/ documentation for accuracy and to fill in the gaps; and separate legends from the facts. Exploring the connects by marriages has been amazing, seeing the expansive history of America.

Family names include: Adams, Carlyle, Conrad, Crockett, Dutt, Kanka, Eddleman/Edelmann/Edlemann, Major, Mauck, Pittman/Pitman/Bittman/Bittmann, Small, Smoots, Snapp, Trabue, Whetstone, Wiseman, Zumwalt.

On my wife's side: Farny (Farni/Farnu), Auer, Baldwin, Creakbaum, Crouse, Dietsch, Holloway, Jones, Kinch, Poelhuis, Schmitt, Warren.

I finally have some research time. As I visit local cemeteries more often, I include random graves to check to Find a Grave. If one belongs to your family, please let me know. My permission is given for the use of any pictures for genealogy purposes.

Thank you
I wish to thank Mr. Pittman for finding a piece of my past that I have been trying to put together all of it for over 27 years. With my father just recently passing, finishing his side of the family is what I do on my spare time. To try to find the information we could not earlier. Charles was my father's, mom's brother. Thank you again.

Trimmer photos and Pittman name
Hi, Richard. Might I have permission to use your photos for Robert 131900879 and Marie 94406077 Trimmer? I would, of course, give you credit.

Second, my father was Richard Pittman! However, we apparently are English, not German, according to DNA. My emigrant elder was Thomas Pitman, sea captain. Early on my family used one T in their surname. Around 1880, my great grandfather had adopted the two T spelling.
