FHC Records

I spent a few hours at the Madison Family History Center (this is a branch of the Mormon Church) going through some films I had ordered.  Just noting here that I did that.  The two films I had ordered were:

Film: 2027350
Methodist Church of Canada. South Stukely Circuit (Québec)

This was ordered before I realized that these records are already online.  I had already found everything I needed from South Stukely (Robert Erwin Clifford’s family records).

Film: 245492
Kirchenbuch – Evangelische Kirche Weißenhöhe (Kr. Wirsitz)

I had hoped to find records from Wilhelm Schmidt’s family since Weissenhöhe is very near where he was born and might have actually been the town in which he was born.  I only found one record I would consider a “possible” hit.  It’s puzzling and I still have to have someone who speaks German take a look at it for me.  I’ll post about that separately.  There were many “Schmidts” in the records, but since it’s a name about as common as “Smith” here, that was not surprising.  Nobody that I could identify as being from my family definitively was found.

Seeking to bring my ancestors out of the shadows of history and into the light. I have always been interested in history, and at a few different times I tried to do a family tree, but wasn't able to do it with the technology that was available then. On a business trip I visited the World War I Museum in Kansas City, MO and it was a very impressive establishment. While I was there I remember thinking, "Didn't my great-grandfather father fight in World War I? And wasn't his brother killed alongside him in some famous battle? I wonder if I can find out where he died." That's what started it all. View all posts by cthomas1967
