Reading a family register in German
« on: Saturday 05 September 20 07:20 BST (UK) »
Heya, everybody. I've managed to find a family register, which includes a man who immigrated to America in the 1840s. There is a section here, I don't speak German, but it looks like it starts with an "." First half of the word looks like "ere..." something. I've heard that these books recorded if someone left the town for somewhere else and I think it might be a reference to his emigration, perhaps. My German is no good since high school but I *think* it looks like "gewandert" but I'm not sure.

Ah, I'm not quite sure, but thank you. I know the word for immigrated is "eingewandert" and I *think* I can make that out in the middle of the first word, but I can't quite tell if I'm reading it right or not.

Thanks, Dave! Wow, that's great. I was quite sure this was the same guy I was looking for, he has the same birthdate as sourced by his gravestone in America and it's from the same village he was supposed to be from. Really, really glad that documentation was there!
