I am trying to find possible ancestors who may have come from Gries. I am hoping you understand English. Unfortunately, I do not speak French but I am hoping you might be able to tell me where I can write to find out information on this family:
Johann Straß married to Mariae Magdalenae on June 14, 1712 in Wollfsheim, France? (HTTPS://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/FXTW-JFT
I also have info that they were married in Gries:
Prénom de l'épouse : Mariae Magdalenae
Date du marriage : 14Jun1712
Prénom de l'époux : Johann
... Nom de l'époux : STRAß
Commune du marriage : Gries, Bas-Rhin, France
I do not know if Wollfsheim is near Gries or why there are 2 different towns named but I would like to know if there is an archive or church or town hall that I can contact to find out about this family and any children from this marriage. My ancestor was
Johann Strass (or Strasser) born about 1712-1713 who came to America in 1732 on the ship Samuel at the age of 19. I have not been able to find out where he was born but I am hoping the two people I mentioned about might be his parents.
Thank you for any information you can send me.
