Gottlieb (or Charles) Kolb needs some German sources

+6 votes
Gottlieb (or Charles) Kolb needs some sources, particularly birth and marriage. His profile has lots of sources along with links to both FamilySearch and Ancestry trees that have lots of sources. I don't have the expertise in German records...

Please feel free to add sources directly to his profile.

He appeared as the father for 3 children during the ConnectAThon.

German records are very "uniquely challenging" as it took me quite some time to get what I did to locate my German family too.

I had just provided some additional updates/additions to the information, individuals, etc... along with sources and such.

Your more than welcome to adjust the format and such.

I'll also be changing the Manager to you as it's for your family.

EDIT: I'll be removing myself as the manager for the individuals I had added for you to adopt their profiles.

I hope it was helpful for you to expand upon.

Thanks. I was hoping that someone would add birth for him before I orphan him.

Two of his children married to descendants of my ancestors, so this is an "in-law" family.
I added a source from the church records on

Will see whether I can add more data for his parents.

The birth record referenced in the profile is as good as it gets since church records were the only such records before the 1870's. The best, albeit not free, source for protestant church records would be Archion, they let you search for free but charge a fee for the actual record if you find one.

And his name was Gottlieb Ludwig, not Gottlob, and German culture does not have the concept of "middle name" meaning Ludwig should be as second name in the "First Name" field.

Nürtingen in 1834 was politically not connected to Esslingen, Baden-Württemberg did not exist until 1952, neither did Germany until 1872. It was its own Oberamt, the equivalent of a county, in the Königreich Württemberg, a sovereign member of the Deutscher Bund.
