I am looking for information on temples in the villages of
Higeshimura and Ikenoyama. Both are located in
Wakayama. I have family information on my mother's
WADA line going back to 1708, however, only the
names of the husbands were recorded before the late 1800's. A few daughters are listed if they were unmarried, but they are identified only as "daughter" - names were not given. I am hoping that the temple(s) which the family belonged to might have more information available. Any suggestions on how to locate temples? Also, does anyone know what type of information or records were/are kept at the temples?
