taken while I was home on leave from boot camp 1982 in the front yard of our house at 857 Homer St. Freeport IL
This was taken after my graduation from bootcamp. It's bittersweet in that its one of the last photos taken of the entire family. My sister was murdered just a month later...
baby picture of Debra Lynn Deitz, born 4/1964 -- parents are David Wade Deitz & Judith Linn Wagand-Deitz
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!
another view of Dietz Castle, which now is a museum. Until recently the town of Diez has always had a "Dietz" as it mayor. I am a descendent of the brother who for unknown reasons changed the spelling from "Dietz" to "Deitz" tho his many siblings kept to the original spelling.

I discovered this print on Amazon.com while researching Dietz Castle. Unfortunately, I do not have further information on it.
