If in former times clearly most Zedlitzes lived in Silesia, today Zedlitzes can be found everywhere in the world. Today most of them can be found in Germany and the USA, but also in Denmark and Norway (written ‘Zetlitz’) you can find representatives.

In the year 2000 there were 157 entries for the name ZEDLITZ in the German telephone directory, but in the meantime this number has dropped to about 100. This is probably due to the decreasing importance of telephone directories.
