17 January 1733



This is the date that my 7th great grandparents, Johann Carle HEY and Maria Eva SCHAURER, were married.

Finding their marriage record (see below) in the Evangelische Kirche Rohrbach was such a wonderful find!


This same microfilm had all the birth records for their children, except for Mary Elisabeth who was born in America. I will be publishing screen captures of all these events plus additional information.

It was great to be able to add a father (Hans Peter SCHAURER) for Maria Eva. But there is so much more I can do with all this information as some of the other witnesses to the birth, such as Issac HOY and Albrecht and Juliana WOLFF, are obvious family members. Note that Maria Eva's mother's maiden name was WOLFF.

Additionally, my direct ancestor's (Johann  Philipp) godparents were Philipp and Maria Elisabetha BOUDEMONT. I plan to search for this family surname in America to help me find the HOYS in Pennsylvania. More on that topic later!

      Winter is coming


      No, not the Game of Thrones.  I wish though.   Just thought that my primary genealogy season is usually the winter and early Spring.  Not sure what time you have available, but this works for me.

      The Spring Slowdown


      I think it is a common theme really.  Each year as spring opens and the weather allows a release to the outdoors, the website will see a slowing in information.  That is ok, we really love our gardens as well.  I am also a huge fan of grilling foods.  I am not sure any of that will change in years to come either.   We have also taken a grand step in our field research and spent a week primarily in New Jersey with a few stops in Pennsylvania. It was a grand discovery, and yet, it was overwhelming as well. I have yet to go through all of the information that we uncovered.  And again, we found more holes that need attention.  I jokingly tell my bride that I am "DONE" now that I have linked my American lineage to the initial immigrant from Germany.  It is just a joke, there is always more to do. Thankfully so!   In the coming weeks things will settle and we will once again make some time to get more of our information on line.  Expect a wealth of data surrounding the early Tinsmans in America, maybe in Germany as well.  I will see what I can do.  I will also get more linked information posted for other areas.  Finding so many local resources while we traveled has proven that courthouses and societies are very important places to visit, and even make new friends.   I hope you will find something worth your visit, maybe even something Grand!!!!!
