Quirins of Wolfskirchen update

I don’t know what has changed since before, but when I looked at the Wolfskirchen church records now, I can read them much more clearly.  I’m not perfect, but I can pick out the Quirin entries much better.  I have not gone through all of the records of Wolfskirchen, but I have gone through a bit.  The shorthand citations are all for Wolfskirchen, Protestant Parish, BMS 1671-1679 at the Bas-Rhin Archives, and the page refers to the page on the viewer–not any pagination on the leaves.

The first one is one that I’m having trouble with.  I believe it is a marriage record, but I’m not familiar with the words and cannot decipher some of the letters.  It just has the date 1673–no day or month (page 3, #9).

    Thank you for this valuable work and the link to the archives on line. I’m descended from Jacob Quirin 1677- through his son Johann Nicolas Quirin (1714-1788) who came to Pennsylvania in 1752.

      Hello Patrick,

      I’m glad you found my Quirin transcriptions helpful. You might also find my other notes about Quirins helpful. Look under the Quirin tag https://notednotes.wordpress.com/tag/quirin/

      Particularly, you might want to look at the Pisdorf records. If I remember correctly (haven’t done much Quirin research in the past year), their records aren’t done completely sequentially like Wolfskirchen, they’re broken up a bit.

      If you do transcribe any, please send them to me or post them somewhere and send me a link, I would be eternally grateful. I don’t have my links of the sites I used to teach myself to read and understand the records, but if you have any ancestors from Waldhambach (aka Hambach), start with those records, they’re very easy to read.

      Best of luck!
