    3. I posted the information about the "Dictionary of American family names / Patrick Hanks, editor" because I was so impressed that ancestry actually cited it on their DNA page as a separate work, and not transcribed as their own by volunteers. The "Dictionary of German Names" by Hans Bahlow must be helpful to some. I don't find my "Rebholz" surname there, which is deeply rooted in southern, Catholic Germany. That may explain why it might not show up in that Wisconsin publisher's scope of German research. But I have found "Rebholz" in the German church records going back to the late 16th c. - and even in the IGI. ;-)

    1. [GERMANS-WI] Got your Wappen?
    2. Gary Rebholz
    3. Wappen - coat of arms for GERMANS-WI families? I got the inevitable question about a family crest from a cousin. I'm not making a judgement here. I sent them my collection of the heraldic town emblems that I use as colorful graphics in my printed reports, inserting some of them in my PAF software in place of portraits. I do the same with original signatures from documents, but they're not as colorful. What I'm careful to do when showing a town emplem is to attach the name of the town to the emblem, to avoid inferring a "family crest". Also, when collecting these graphics it can be important to note what date a town adopted an emblem or crest. In checking recently, I noticed there are more examples showing an historic source of a crest side-by-side with a modern version. In that case, I replace the modern graphic with the historic example so the artwork is more contemporary with the ancestor I've matched it to. You can search out ancestral town crests / emblems here: https://heraldry-wiki.com/heraldrywiki/index.php?title=Germany Choose option 5: Coats of arms of districts, cities and municipalities

    3. I have a suggestion on how to go about making your own list: Go to www.familysearch.org (and sign in or create a free account) > Search > Catalog > Keywords put in: Milwaukee Catholic church records > Click "Search" > you come up with 79 entries at https://www.familysearch.org/search/catalog/results?count=20&query=%2Bkeywor ds%3AMilwaukee%20%2Bkeywords%3ACatholic%20%2Bkeywords%3Achurch%20%2Bkeywords %3Arecords To make your own list (for personal use), click the word "Add" , found to the right of each entry, for the entries you are interested in. (To include all 79 titles, you will need to click on each remaining page and "Add" those entries.) When you have "Added" all the entries you want included in your list, click on "Catalog Print List" on top part of the page. For a printable/savable list, highlight all the information from the Title/Author/Call number row and down. Then copy it (Ctrl C), and then paste it (Ctrl V) into a Word document. (Tip: Open a blank Word document and put a pertinent title for the document on it, before you paste the Church information on that document.-It just works better that way.) Now you will have a document with working links. Note: For you to be able to access the actual digitized images (if available remotely), you will need to be signed into your FamilySearch account. Another thing you might want to consider is copying this information into a spreadsheet. That way you would be able to add extra columns and may be able to sort the information. You may want to do a place search at FamilySearch.org. This type of search may give you some different results. In this case the search includes many different denominations. Is it complete??? Go to www.familysearch.org (and sign in or create a free account) > Search > Catalog > Place put in: Wisconsin, Milwaukee, Milwaukee > (click on the green entry) and then "Search" > Select "United States, Wisconsin, Milwaukee, Milwaukee - Church Records (139)" Which turns out to be: https://www.familysearch.org/search/catalog/results?count=20&placeId=200811& query=%2Bplace%3A%22United%20States%2C%20Wisconsin%2C%20Milwaukee%2C%20Milwa ukee%22&subjectsOpen=377571-50 For this search, to view all 139 entries you will need to click on "Show More" to view a few more pages of entries, and "Add" those entries. Then precede to "Catalog Print List", then highlight, Copy, and Paste. Don't forget to save it. I can't guarantee how complete these lists are, but it's sure a good start. Sometimes things are filled differently. If you're not finding what you're looking for, you might want to try searching using the "Keywords" or "Subject" search options while searching the "Catalog". Initially, I did a Google search for "FamilySearch.org Milwaukee Church Records" and came up with the link: Parish and family Registers, 1795-1968[Milwaukee.... and if you click on it https://www.familysearch.org/search/catalog/235277?availability=Family%20His tory%20Library These records are listed as being from The German Evangelical Lutheran Church (Milwaukee, WI). It's quite a large list and if you sign in with your familysearch.org account you can actually view them online at home. Hope this helps someone! P.S. You can "Print" your list to a PDF document, but then the links aren't live. -----Original Message----- From: Kathleen Wilczewski [mailto:klwilczewski@gmail.com] Sent: Wednesday, April 03, 2019 6:55 PM To: germans-wi@rootsweb.com Subject: [GERMANS-WI] Re: GERMANS-WI Digest, Vol 13, Issue 15 No attachment On Wed, Apr 3, 2019 at 7:50 PM <germans-wi-request@rootsweb.com> wrote: > Send GERMANS-WI mailing list submissions to germans-wi@rootsweb.com > > To subscribe via email send a message with subject subscribe and body > subscribe to germans-wi-request@rootsweb.com > > To unsubscribe via email send a message with subject unsubscribe and > body unsubscribe to germans-wi-request@rootsweb.com > > You can reach the person managing the list at > germans-wi-owner@rootsweb.com > > When replying, please edit your Subject line so it is more specific > than "Re: Contents of GERMANS-WI digest..." > > Today's Topics: > > 1. list of Milwaukee Arch. church records microfilm (Lenora Mulock) > 2.

    1. [GERMANS-WI] Rootsweb Lists versus Rootsweb Message Boards
    2. Gary Rebholz
    3. I'm not aware that the Rootsweb Lists have ever included attachments as a feature, like the Rootsweb Message Boards do. When all else fails, try the familysearch library catalog, or contact the person directly instead of creating a lot of redundant messages in this archive.

    1. [GERMANS-WI] Single most underused research resource ...?
    2. Gary Rebholz
    3. A library's online catalog is probably the single most underused resource for genealogy research. That includes the familysearch catalog. One of the reasons for this is the change made in the last 5-10 years. (I've talked with library staff in Milwaukee and Madison about this.) There are links found on some online catalogs that offer the use of the old version. At MPL that link is called "Classic Catalog". The MADCAT (WHS) catalog had a link to their old catalog that may have been removed since the last time I checked. I continue to use the old Notepad app to copy-and-paste text from library catalogs for later use - gets rid of the unnecessary formatting. Or use the option to email citations to yourself. I copied-and-pasted all area church films from both the ARC catalog and FHL list into my own handy bibliography. I used that info to re-construct my sources too, to the original creators of the records.

    2. Lenora Mulock
    3. I use the records from Family Search.   I have a list of the film #'s and then all I have to do is put in the # of the church.  I found it easier than searching for the church.  Records go up to 1920 ************************

    2. Gary R Rebholz
    3. Use a 'location search' in the catalog of the familysearch. org site for Milwaukee. You'll see a couple of confusing options added by their catalogers because of source labels or content. You'll want Milwaukee, Milwaukee Co., Wisconsin -> church records. It's not obvious, but there are 3 pages of records listed there, with the option to "add more" at the bottom. The camera icon indicates they are available for browsing online. The large selection of churches is not 100% comprehensive of all the area churches, but the early Catholic churches ones are found there. Dates of their registers are found there. The earliest are St. Mary (mostly German), St. Peter (short-lived Cathedral), Holy Trinity (mostly German), St. Anthony (German & Polish), St. Joseph (mostly German), St.Gall (generally Irish).

    3. Are there Milwaukee catholic church records online? My family came first to Milwaukee before heading to Madison in the 1870s.

    1. [GERMANS-WI] Returning to old sources for critical info ...
    2. Gary Rebholz
    3. It can be worth it to return to any source to use your OWN eyes for your GERMAN-WI ancestors. I have some transcriptions of Bavarian church records from 1986 given to me by the family of a distant, deceased cousin. She did some really great research back in her day. I'm happy to credit her with an entry as a source in my PAF software. The archion.de site now has the same records online and in looking through what my cousin was given (purchased) by the pastor I've been able to add to and even correct some of his information. He states in his letter that he was unable to find some things, which I've found, but also some info. he provides is not found in the archion.de collection of parish registers. I've discovered that his spelling of "Quast?" (Pastor's own question) is actually Kunst, and that his Felseissen, can also be found as "Felseis", with one entry found as "Felseis(en)". Notes from 1986 infer there might have been a separate register kept in the parish house which might explain why I haven't matched some of his information. I had no idea that 18th c. families paid a fee to the church to register a birth. Baptism, in this case, appears to be optional. Another _critical addition_ I've made is the German's use of the "house number" usually added to baptisms and sometimes deaths and confirmations. In the small German towns you can _sometimes_ create multiple generations of a family just by matching the house number with the town name. I've also found 19th c. German "Familienbuch" charts in the from a Württemburg church (FHL films). There were 3 marriages for one Rebholz ancestor. When I went through the baptism and death registers to match with the information in the cart I was able to add additional infants for a total of 23 family births. These are not "guesses" or just possible matches, but fit perfectly within the family time frame and the medical calendar. This is also one of those German church records that indicates "nach Amerika" (to America) next to my ancestor's name. That's also why I returned to Milwaukee's church records and added additional layers of info. to my Germans-WI family story.

    1. [GERMANS-WI] Save your GERMANS-WI research on your old technology ...
    2. Gary Rebholz
    3. Your GERMANS-WI research may not remain safe on a computer that regularly accesses the internet. I update my family tree project using old PAF software on one of 3 old laptops; the same for my archive of images of records. If necessary, I can use an old IPAD-mini, or my 1997 laptop for indexing. It doesn't matter if the operating system is no longer supported by Apple or Microsoft. I even use the old image editing software on my older machines. Aren't we recreating GERMANS-WI family stories because the "old" was tossed away?
