DIETZ CASTLE (House of Dietz-Nassau)

Photo Details

DIETZ CASTLE, Diez, Germany in the Lahn River Valley, a few hours from Frankfurt. (pronounced "Deets"). My paternal ancestors belonged to the House of Dietz-Nassau & we do have some notable figures as relatives."

"House of Dietz-Nassau" I think may be a mistaken naming of the "HOUSE OF ORANGE-NASSAU" to which the Dietz's belong... I have not seen any references to "Dietz-Nassau" but I may be wrong!

Sylvia Hertel The spelling was changed from Dietz to Deitz to preserve the correct sound when they came to the USA. Such spelling changes were common among German immigrants.
