The data of Wuenschelburg (date: 2021, January) covers at the time the period of the eldest, up to now not filmed church book 1624 – 1650 and the filmed data up to 1874 with its connections to the following time. A great part on my own father’s side is coming from Wuenschelburg, so these data are temporal and local over and above that.

As far as possible the the persons were put together to families, some of the data might be connected in future. Some of the names (not only of the persons but also of the towns) might be written wrong, especially if those were rare or unreadable. So, sorry, but I can’t guarantee all data.

Known gaps in the church bools of Wuenschelburg:
Baptism: February 1646 till April 1646
Baptism, church wedding, burial: December 1666 till April 1671
