- contributor's notes: Most of the records were written in German Script so I first had to translate that into English character before translating [with much help from the dictionary] it into English. I am not fluent in German so there may be a few translation errors. Translations and transcriptions are my own. My added notes appear in [brackets]. The [?] reflect the spelling or translation to be a best guess. Translations appear directly under the German, although not all of the German script has not been included on these pages. The researcher should determine for themselves the accuracy of my added notes/comments if there is any doubt.
