Family History Center Visit 16

Yesterday, I visited the local Family History Center, and I took another look at the Weisenheim am Berg, Germany church records. I had missed a few entries on a few ancestors, so I decided to go back and look again. I was able to find those records, and I also made larger copies of some other records that I had found before. So, all in all, it was very successful research hour for me, and I guess a good way to end my research for awhile, if not for the rest of the year. The next time I'll be able to do research is around Christmas break, and hopefully, I'll be able to do so. Stay tuned ...
