Roesch in Iffezheim in late 1600s

A large part of my ancestors originates from Sandweier. Since the first decades of the church books of Sandweier are very incomplete, I decided to execute a complete analysis of the first two church books. This covers the period of 1679 to 1785. Only by this analysis it was possible to detect connections which would have remained hidden with a superficial handling.

The handling is not final yet. At present the first church book (1679 to 1740) is completely analysed. By the second church book (1740 to 1785) those are marrying completely, the baptism analysed from 1740 to 1749 and the funerals not yet. By the analysed sections about a fifth electronically were captured and are represented on this page. Some few data originate from other periods.

The following data are based, if not differently indicated, on the microfilms of the Roman-catholic church books of Sandweier, FHL 1046098, part of 1 and 2.
