Review/Description: 26,394 family groups compiled from church records. Hatzfeld was one of the early villages that served as a source of settlers for many later villages. Many people from other villages can trace their roots back to here. This series supplants a previous publication covering 1766-1866. (We have a copy on CD.) The new publication uses records that were not available to the original author and cross references with many other Familienbuchs to correct errors from the original and expand on its content, plus adding about 55 years of new information. It includes several pictures, some maps, a history (in German – translation on our site), and the usual indices of wives’ names, villages, and an unusual index of occupations.
