Hope to visit Germany this summer but need help in finding information on my family in Holz, Saarland before I travel there.
Valentin Feld (born c1843) married (c1866) Sophie Michler (born Jan.1844). Had 6 children in Germany- Katharina (1867), Sophia (1869), Bertha (1873), Ludwig (c1878), Valentin (1879), Ernst (1881)- then went to America in 1881 & 1882.
Settled in Waterbury area, Connecticut, U.S. where other Feld relatives lived.
1909 Friedrich Feld living in Holz, possibly a brother of Valentin's. Three daughters: Louise, Ida and Emma.
Also have old photograph of a Katharina Feld born 11 May 1861 but don't know how she was related.
Would marriage record (c1866) exist- think they might have been Luthern- and birth certificates (1860s)? and how might I obtain copies. Also, any census records for the area?
Any help greatly appreciated. Linda
