Re: Where to begin with Rhineland-Palatinate ancestry?
thank you Robert! that info helps alot. i'm vaguely aware of German history, but i still have alot to learn.
i'm looking for Johann Michael Weingartz(b.1813) he settled in Center Line, MI. He married Anna Gertrude Mueller(Miller) who someone else has as being from Dümpelfeld. it looks like they may have come between 1853 and 1856.
i'm trying to find info on Johann Michael Weingartz, as i don't have any more info on his family in Germany. i have a line for Anna Gertrude going back to 1655, but i still need to verify it.
for some reason i keep forgetting Center Line isn't too far away, and i could try to look find where they keep original files on them, but i'm not sure where that would be.
