Planning a trip to Speyer, maybe Wiesbaden Archives

Recommended Posts

We are planning a trip back to Germany late in 2018.  Hoping to get some peaceful time in the Fatherland and ancestral home, but also considering a hunt for some administrative records from the archives.


Anyone aware of someone that might be willing to look for some records in those locations, maybe we can pull together some funding for such an effort?  It might require a look into Koblenz or Darmstadt as well though.  The records I am looking for are from the Hachenburg region that primarily begins there but also spans villages north, west, and some even a little south of Hachenburg,  There may be some additional records in the Neu Wied area, as I am surmising that an affiliation may have been recorded there due to their departure location, the Rhine river, and a possible relation to the Moravians that seem to have had a presence in that area. Time period in question is pre 1775.  Would want to get copies of court, emigration, or other administrative documents.

Same thing as above for the region of Rohrbach and Dillingen Germany.  I think these records would be in Speyer if there are any.

      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!!!!!
