Any Latin scholars that can help with this?

    • Unfortunately, many cemeteries in Germany removed the old graves and grave markers (if they existed) to make room for new burials. Consequently there are not many old grave markers in modern cemeteries. The cemeteries that we have visited are lovingly maintained with beautiful flowers. Herrnsheim's cemetery was no exception. We did not find any Göhle graves. There were a few new graves for Harbauers and the Arnold and Bardong names were very common. The only older tombstones were for former burgermeisters. There were also a few older markers for fallen soldiers - including one for Bardong and one for Harbauer.
    • There were several listings for Harbauer in the Worms phone book for 2007.
    • The church records were recorded in Latin and the civil records were recorded in German. The church records were recorded in the Catholic Parish Church of St Peter in Herrnsheim. The records for Herrnsheim were (more or less) written in Latin. The spelling of the names varied depending, I think, on the whim or the person recording the event. "in" was added to most female surnames, but not all. Endings for male names varied with "us", "i", "o" being most common. However, in the case of Jo(h)ann it sometimes ended with "e". Most female names ended with "a".


    Maria Agnes Weigand daughter of Gerhard Weigand and Angela of Osthofen married J Wilhelm Hoff in Herrnsheim in 1698.

    Note: The LDS records for Osthofen include Evangelical records from 1577-1725 on microfilm #1457619 and Catholic records from 1721-1798 on microfilm #0948720. The Catholic records are too late for arie Agnes Weigand, but the name appears to be fairly common in Osthofen and some connection may be made.
