I can't believe I saw your message. I can tell you all about Gottlieb's family. I have been trying to contact some of his family for over 25 years!!!! I was in Kloestitz, Bessarabia two summers ago. I also went to Derendingen, Germany the Metz ancestral home.
Gottlieb was a brother to my Greatgreatgrandfather Johann Jacob Metz 1837-1905. He never immigrated to America. My greatgrandfather Jacob Metz came to North Dakota in 1905 from Kloestitz. I am very very anxious to hear from you!!! Ron Metz
