"Maybe this is being answered a little late, but have you looked at any books by Gerhard Storb? Until his recent death he was very active in publishing books on the village populations of Saarlouis. I was able to trace close to 200 yrs of…"
"I joined this group because my cousin does Maltese genealogy. As I spent the last three weeks with her at RootsTech I feel I now know something about the Island. She had three different books on Maltese genealogy. I've sent…"
The names of the children could be a clue to identify the names of Lorenz' parents. The Black Forrest (Schwarzwald) was part of the kingdom of Württemberg and the grandduchy of Baden.
The children were all born here in the U.S. so that might not help. I don't have Lorenz's parents name either. All that is know was he was the only son of an only son. They did mention the Black Forest…"
"I suggest that you try to find the marriage because my ancestors actually stated the villages that they came from because they married in a German Lutheran Church in London and the pastor was German. On census returns they would…"

Think I have located Patrick Hoolehan b about 1830 in Co. Tipperary married to a Winiford Hetherington about 1856. Their first child is Ann b. abt 1857 in the County. The family then moves to Leeds, England for about 5 years then off to Cincinnati, Ohio, USA they go. I believe I have Patrick in the Girffith's Val in the parish of Knigh. Anyone working there? This family misses the birth and marriages for Ireland, so I have only the church records to go on. They were Roman Catholic. Ideas??…See More
