- 2. [Pfalz] German first name sounds like Zennin? 
- Was just talking with a woman I've been working with trying to tie our
two families together and she mentioned that she had one first cousin
over in Germany that she ever knew of and his first name was Zennin.
She's sure she never saw the name written down so she doesn't know how
it was spelled. She's a sharp 86-year-old and I have no reason to
doubt her about this name. I've just never seen or heard of it before.
I tried behindthename.com and tried every spelling I could think of.
I'm sure it

- 4. [Pfalz] Anne Scharffenberg Forchammer 
According to the German surname-mapping site
http://www.verwandt.de/karten/ , the names Scharffenberg and the more
common Scharfenberg tend to concentrate in the northern fringe of the
country near Hamburg, with only a sprinkling in the Pfalz. The north
of Germany has a religious affinity with Norwegians, as well as old sea
trade connections, so unless you have specific evidence pointing to a
Palatinate origin for your Scharffenbergs, I would guess the north
would be a likelier source.

- Thanks to everyone for all the help!! The translation site, etc. worked
fine, some chuckles over some of the words, but it certainly is a wonderful
service. I was able to get pictures, history, etc. of the area. It is a
well known area for wine and oddly enough I'm from the Central New York,
near the Finger Lakes area which is the wime growing area in New York.
Also, I found the _ on my keyboard. Thanks for the help with the name and

- The Paraguay left London, England 29 August 1869. As far as I can tell
it made no stops before docking in New York City about 3 weeks later.
The ships list can be obtained from LDS. My g-g-grandfather was a
passenger from London on the ship.

I am trying to find the location of birth of my gggrandparents:
LUKAS, Michael b. 1827 and MIEDEL, Magdalena b. 1837 in Rheinland,

Grossmaischeid belongs to the district (Kreis) Neuwied North of Koblenz. The
district Neuwied became 1815 part of the Prussian Rheinland but never
belonged to Bavaria. Since 1946 it is integrated in the federal state
(Bundesland) Rheinland-Pfalz whose Pfalz-part was Bavarian.

- 18. RE: [PFALZ] Ortspedell 
- Perhaps a native German speaker has already answered question in private,
but if not, here's my two cents. My German-English dictionary translates
Pedell as "caretaker". Duden's Rechtschreibung offers further information,
in German, which I translate as follows:
Pedell: mostly Austrian. Archaic for: Caretaker of a school or college.
Unfortunately, neither my dictionaries nor my Duden's have an entry for
Ortspedell. This is just a random guess then, but perhaps then Ortspedell
meant "local caretaker",

I highly recommend you use Interlibrary Loan to borrow the

German Pioneers: A publication of the original lists of arrivals in
the port of Philadelphia from 1727-1808." The original 3-vol edition
from, I believe 1934, includes a volume containing the passengers'
facsimile signatures; the 1966 reprint by the Geneaological Publishing
Company omits that volume. You already have the relevant passenger
list, apparently, but Strassburge

One name in your email was very familiar. There are Christmanns sprinkled

living in the region, one family running a large nursery in Feilbingert.
Grunstadt is southeast of the Alsenz river valley in which the above towns
are located. But not too far away to intermarry. The French were in
control of the region between about 1789 and 1815, accordin
