Some of the common questions I've heard from others that have contacted me with the Weltch name are...Where do we come from? How long have we been in the United States? Where did the  " T " come from? Do you have information on my family line?  Because of these questions, I decided to make this web site.I hope with what I know and with the help of others interested in history, we can  connect people, provide family lines and maybe provide pictures to put to the names.There are about 13 pages to the left of the screen containing information.
