> a. Birth record for Godfrey Raish, born 1784 in Fellback, Wurtenburg (on microfilm)
> b. Several microfilm records for Stephanie Gaidosch, born 1881 in Radautz, Bukowina, Austria (now Romania): Confirmation class record, and the Familienbuch, a summary of vital records which included parents names and DOB, siblings names and DOB, house number, etc.
> 2. Was able to copy book length genealogies for Barrows and Howland onto my thumb drive, again for free.
> 3. Consulted with the professional research staff on next steps. It really helps to get another perspective. There is a Polish speaking woman who helped us write a letter in Polish to the archives.
> 4. Passenger list record for Godfrey Raish, Antwerp to Philadelphia on the Margaret, August, 1805 (microfilm and book record).
