16160RE: [genpcncfir] Salzburg
- Apr 30, 2007Thank you, Carol. I have checked most of the places you mention. Remember
that this is a very early date for Georgia. What I am really trying to find
is the Internet site that covers birth and baptism records for Salzburg and
Austria. I just cannot recall the name of the site. All of my searches have
produced nothing, but I know I saw it . It was one of the sites that you
have to pay for. They were having their three days free trial period. It
seems that it started with a g. Is there a site called something like
genealogy that would have early records for European countries. The site I
saw was in English except for the actual records that were photocopied.

If your site search does not work, a good bet would
be to check with a research librarian or archivists at
the local libary in that part of Georgia.
Another resource would be archives of the local
newspaper: marriage columns and obituaries often fill
in missing links.
A third resource would be immigration related
records like passenger lists from ships. These give
the name, birthplace, age, and occupation of the
I can run to the State Library of Virginia
downtown, a hop skip and jump from me here, and go
through its books of passenger lists. This library has
since before I came here as a child always taken an
avid interest in genealogical research. Consequently,
it has lots of original documents and publications
from other states.
A fourth source would be land records. Those deeds
have amazing biographical information completely
unnecessary and unrelated to the property transfers
they document, but oh what a treasure trove for people
interested in the doings of their fellowman.
A fifth source would be church records: baptisms,
memberships, marriages, births, and deaths.
I hope this information helps.
My husband's family immigrated to this country from
Austria and Bavaria. Two physicians in his family over
a 40-year period put together an amazingly
comprehensive volume covering each and every one of
them, and this long before the age of the computer.
The younger compiler actually visited the town of his
ancestors' birth, met living kin, and learned a great
deal from extensive interviews with the pastor of the
church where many of his ancestors were buried. The
citizens even ended up making him an honorary citizen
of the town. I am sure that single act was more
rewarding to him than anything his researches had
Let me know if I can help.
