Review/Description: As per usual, this familienbuch is a compilation of families, created from the original church books. This volume supplements an earlier work by Josef Kühn that covers the period up to about 1850, unfortunately leaving a gap of 45 years. The book also contains several indices and some town maps. What makes this book unusual is that the authors are English, making it somewhat easier to decipher for novice researchers. Also, author Dave Dreyer, the compiler of the Banater Passenger Ship List, has linked this information to the church book data to provide a more complete story for those who immigrated through the USA.
