My great-grandmother Auguste was born in the 1890's in Volhynia in the Dubno area. She and her sister Marie both believed their birth surname was WITT. 
Further DNA evidence suggests that this may be correct. I am looking for Witt families from the Dubno area that may be related to her. 

I have branched out the trees of her adopted parents, Peter & Wilhelmina (Busse) Rehlich and did not find connections to WITT. When I began to branch out trees
of Peter & Wilhelmina's relatives and close friends that lived in Bruce Crossings, MI. I found ties to many families located in Bridgman, Three Oaks and Berrien, MI. 
Several families had WITT ancestors that lived in the same area of Volhynia. It is obvious that these families knew each other. 

I am especially interested in the following WITT connections: 

Samuel Schulz  married 1864 to Caroline WITT (born 1842)
August WITT  married 1864  Wilhelmina Borgwardt  
Frederick WITT married Alwine Jaruschewitz  had son Benjamin WITT  born1883
Johanna C. F. WITT (born 1826) married Jacob Gitersonke 

Also interested in WITT families that came from the Nowy Dwor region of Poland. 

If anyone is researching the WITT side of these families, please contact me. We are especially interested in information relating to their ancestors or if any descendents of these WITT families
have taken a DNA test or would be interested in one. 

Additionally if anyone knows if there are online records for Nowy Dwor, I would appreciate a link to them.

Thanks in advance,
