The surname Maitz originates from the Austrian/ Hungarian border area, the today's Burgenland and the Styria. The different ways of writing Maitz, Meitz, Meiz, Maicz could be followed up to the 18. Century. The interesting family relations are delightful. The carriers of the name were farmers or agricultural workers.
Most exciting is the family of the grandmother on the paternal side. Similar to the previous, the name Däubler, partly written as Deibler, can be followed to the middle of the 18. Century. The ancestors lived in the Bavarian/ Swabian Ries, at the locations Oettingen, Hochaltingen, Forsthof and Stahlhof. A delightful task is clarifying whether a connection to the executioner dynasty of the same name exists, which also was represented in this area. However, it seems that this has a low probability, but it is still a focus of investigation.
The members of the Däubler family were farmers, millers, brick and tile makers, backers and restaurant owners.
After the Second World War some members of the family emigrated to Australia and the USA.
The maiden name of the mother (Scherer) originates from the North-Baden Erlenbach close to Osterburken. The name is documented over three further generations. Here the ancestors are well established and work in the agriculture.
The grandmother on the maternal side originates from the families Reinlein and Reuß (Reuss), which already have been for a long time in Lower Franconia, predominantly in the area Kitzingen and Schwarzach. Many members of the family have been living since the 1920/1930ies in Brazil, Blumenau and Rio Negrinho.
