I am trying to research the history of the Kobel family in Germany prior to the 1730's when certain members came to Pennsylvania and later to North Carolina.
Most of the history that I have seen refers to the book “The Coble Family in America” published by the Alamance Country Historical Society in 1974.
Most of this book consists of family genealogies in North Carolinaand is the work of Rev. D. I. Offman.This part seems to have been compiled in the 1920’s or 30’s.But the first part of the book dealing with family history in Germany seems to have been done by someone else at another time.
What are the sources of this information?I am assuming that most of it comes from church records, but which church?When was it done?Who would have these records now?
Are there any other sources of information out there that I am not aware of?
If anyone can help me with any of this I would greatly appreciate it.
