I am interested in tracing a specific Verkamp-Birth 1833 Gerhard H. Verkamp(brother Bernard 1834, Mary 1835). His parents only known as Gerhard and Elizabeth(died on boat 1846 according to family folk lore). I understand you may have Catholic Church records of Emsburen area. This particular line went directly to Cincinnati(not Indiana branch).
One of the descendents of G.H. feels he was baptized in Baden Baden in 1833?
Thanks-trying to wrap up loose ends before my Fatherinlaws 80th Birthday 3/18/03.!
