I intend for this page to carry links to information for those doing genealogy on the Bartel name. It is bartel.com, afterall. If you have genealogical information about Bartel family members that you would like to see referenced, or perhaps even hosted, here please contact me.
Bartel is a relatively common surname, and most of the people I have been contacted by are not related to my family, at least not since immigration to this country (by which I mean the United States. As an American I forget sometimes there's more than just the US in this world, which disturbs me).
My own family immigrated from Northern Germany in the 1870's. Johan and Johanna (Goldbek) Bartel settled in Franklin County Missouri.
