Herrnsheim Goehles

Vogt - De Vogt, Herrnsheim, Germany

  • All records from LDS microfilms 0958790 and 0958791 unless otherwise noted.

  • Herrnsheim (Herrn's heim), meaning Gentleman's Home, was a Catholic village just north of the city of Worms. The "Gentleman's Home" was the "schloss" (palace or castle) of the von Dahlberg (Dalberg) family.

  • The records in Herrnsheim for Vogth (de Vogt) are limited to those connected to Peter Vogt and his wife, Anna Catherine Peteriff, and to those connected to Heinrich Vogt and his wife, Anna. Peter and Heinrich appear to have been born around the same time circa 1650.

    Peter Vogt* and Anna Catherine Peteriff(in)*

    Birth: No later than 1653 based on an age of 20 years at his marriage in 1673.


    • Other than the marriage in 1673 there were no records for the name in Herrnsheim until the baptism of Gertrude in 1684. The next year there were also records for Heinrich de Vogt. It may be that Peter married in Herrnshiem but the family did not live there until the 1680s.

    Odd Records

    Death: 5 April 1728 Margarethe Vogt mut er ex ------


    • 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".
