  1. Great thanks, I realize I may never know. I do appreciate your help. As far as the Dutch Reformed Church records, they are 3 other books I found written by Adolph Van der Velde whose ancestors were also in that area and intermarried with members of that church, 2 other books specifically about his family and one about the Walloon community in Hanau. I checked those to see if any of my family showed up there. No luck. You mentioned there was a lot going on in the Mannheim area between 1600-1650. Are there any good books you can point me to that might give me an idea? Once again, thanks for checking.
  2. Thank you so much for your help. I had begun to think that I was just missing them due to my not speaking/reading the languages. I did think it interesting that the Dutch Reformed Church record books from the Frankenthal / Mannheim area as transcribed by Adolph van der Velder were apparently available when his books were written. I don’t understand why that ‘Reformed’ denomination would not have been attacked as well as the French Reformed Church.
  3. Thank you. If you open the document I put together, it will give you a better idea of all of my findings from this one book. It is just my hypothesis from all of the books and information put together over the years on my ancestors.
  4. The book written in 1908 is at the university. The information in it was taken from the Mannheim/Frankenthal/Heidelberg church records. The title is: Das Kirchenbuch der französischen reformierten Gemeinde zu Heidelberg 1569 - 1577 und Frankenthal in der Pfalz 1577 - 1596 http://digital.ub.uni-duesseldorf.de/urn/urn:nbn:de:hbz:061:1-471229
  5. Ronald, Thank you for answering me. This is the book I got the information from. It is completely searchable, but the record ends in 1599. I have put together some information into a document. http://digital.ub.uni-duesseldorf.de/urn/urn:nbn:de:hbz:061:1-471229 I am just missing about 51 years worth of records. Thanks for your help.

  6. Hi Ronald, I am looking for French Reformed Church records from Mannheim and Frankenthal from 1600 to 1700. I found some from the 1500’s in this book. http://digital.ub.uni-duesseldorf.de/urn/urn:nbn:de:hbz:061:1-471229 But there is nothing after 1599. The surnames I am researching are Louroux with variations of Lorou, Lourou and le Roux. The first name is seen in several variations as well. Bertolet, Bertholet, Biertholet and Bertollet. I know he was from Verviers, Belgium. He had two son’s and two daughters from a previous marriage who I know lived in the Mannheim/ Frankenthal area. 1. Antoine (unsure as to any variations) 2. Jean Bertolet also seen as Jehan and the variations listed above for surname and his father’s name. My ancestors came from Mannheim on the Dutch ship de Trouw between 1670 and 1680 and settled in the northern New Jersey area marrying into Dutch families. Any help you can give me in pointing to any research sites, is greatly appreciated. Elizabeth LaRoe
