Hi Rena:

Sorry I didn't thank you sooner.  My main interest is an Heinrich Albrecht, perhaps a Hessian,  sent to N. America to fight for King George during the American Revolution plus a Palatine Family possibly from Niedersachsen who arrived in NY Colony 1709.  Have a lot of the N. American information, but no info for Germany.

Thanks for passing so much information.  Have an Albany, NY site for early baptisms (1740's) if anyone is interested.

Hi Ann,
Sorry, but I only spotted one emigrant (auswanderer) record for a Wilhelmine Becker born 1846. There was another record for a "Mina Becker" under 14 yrs old who travelled with a Becker family 1865 but not knowing anything about your research I couldn't say if she was one of yours.

As you have a 1920 address for her father Fritz Becker this could be in the parish (Gemeinde) where Wilhelmina was baptised.  I suggest you look on the www.familysearch.org website in the "Library" section and enter the town as the search criteria.  Hopefully, this should bring up a film of the parish church (Gemeindekirche) records in the time span you require.  If you don't know where to view the film - the website also gives a list of places near you which have facilities.

Hope this helps.

Hi Rena:

 :DThank you for the tips.  Will try to wend my way into this site.  Looking for Palatines who left Prussia abt 1708 or 1709.  Surname is May?  Wonder if that is Anglacized?  Do you know?  Thanks for the tips.

Lauraine

Hello Lauraine,

On the first list of Palatines taken at St.Catherines May 6th 1709 there was-

David May age 24 Husbandman and Vinedresser Religion Ref.

There are also the names Mey and Meyer listed.
Do you have a first name to go on?
