Date: Tue, 27 Mar 2001 07:32:54 -0500

I just noticed this family bible for sale on eBay. Here is the description...

There is a little bit of geneology on the front page. The groom August
Gabbert and the
bride Ernestine Sonnenburg, both from Romanshof where married by
Pastor Clement 10th of
Dec. 1865. This Bible was presented to them from the community of
Romanshof. I am also
enclosing the Confirmation Certificate of the groom.He was
confirmed in Czarnikau April 4th
1852. Romanshof was situated in the county of Czarnikau which was
in Posen a Province of
Prussia. This area belongs to Poland since 1945. May be there is
somebody out their who
has any links to this Bible.The Bible is bound in full leather
,which was nicely tooled when
new. The exterior shows major wear. content is good. Sell as poor


The seller is in Colesburg, Iowa.

I don't see any Gabbert researchers registered on Posen-L, but Julia Hirsch
and Willis Trettin are registered as researching Sonnenberg.
