Re: Handels from Dettingen, Germany
It looks like your line is Georg Handel (b. 1505) and Anna Unbekannt (b. 1508). Mine is the other Handel Line out of Dettingen, Hans Handel.I have a distant Handel cousin in Esslingen Germany that put together a 600 page book of Handels from Dettingen an der Erms.He told me that he found two lines that he couldn't match up, partly because the information in the town records was too general (i.e. Johann, son of Georg) without necessarily additional information to trace with. My line left Dettingen around 1817 and migrated to Bessarabia (now Ukraine), before migrating to the US in 1904 (other in the line fled back to Germany around 1940).He has your Margaretha Handel (traced down from Georg) and Johann Martin Wurster, but doesn't seem to go later than them in that part of the line.
