Dedicated to locating and bringing together
the descendants of Johannes Bitler


Johannes Bitler was a German or Swiss immigrant to colonial America. Around 1736, he arrived at the Port of Philadelphia onboard the ship "Harle." He married and moved to Robeson Township, Berks County in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to established his homestead. In close to 300 years, his family has grown and spread throughout the United States.  We dedicate this project to our ancestors who have been a part of the fabric of American life.

August 18, 2023 UPDATE

Today, I updated the main BITLER family tree online to include an additional 2,580 newly-found descendants since our web update in July 2022. There was an interim update this past November, but I forgot to record the number of additions at that time, so new additions is based on the 2022 edition. Discovery of descendants is continuing on all three branches of Johannes Bitler's children - John, Daniel and Michael. If you have additions or corrections, please bring them to the reunion, or contact me directly via email or on the Bitler Family Tree Facebook page.

Enjoy the updates, and I hope to see everyone at the Reunion at Montour Preserve on August 19!   -Glenn
