I have information to contribute to the profile of Hans George Angstadt. This is what I can add:

  • Birth date: 23 Feb 1696
  • Died 1767 Rockland Township, Berks County, PA
  • Wife:  Eva  Catharina schaeffer, b. 1702 Gumbrechtshoffen, Bas-Rinn, Alsace, France
  • Married 1725 Obermodern-Zutzendorf, Bas-Rhin, Alsace, France
  • Children: 
    • George Angstadt b. 26 Nov 1776. Germany, d. 1774 Rockland Township, Berks County, PA
    • John Angstadt b. 1732 Gumbrechtshoffen, Bas-Rhin, Alsace, France, d before 14 Aug 1806 Rockland Township, Berks County, PA
    • Adam Angstadt b 1736, Germantown, Philadelphia County, PA, d. 1812 Maxatawny Township, Berks County, PA

These are the sources I am using:

Strausstown Roots personID=I137009&tree=Strausstown

Should I contact one of the pre-1700 projects or know about any style guidelines before proceeding? Thank you!

Hi Judy,

Thanks for posting here. I'd suggest editing your post and adding the "france" and "pennsylvania" tags to your post, to see if projects for one or both of those locations would apply for this profile.

Also the source that you listed appears to be a user-contributed family tree. User-contributed family trees are not considered reliable sources for pre-1700 profiles. If the user-contributed family tree cites sources for the facts that you would like to add/update in the profile, then I'd suggest seeking out those sources, and if they are pertinent to the data that you'd like to add/update, add those source citations to your post, so that they can be considered.

Hi Judy,

The Bas-Rhin Archives contain parish and civil registers for many of the towns in Bas-Rhin (free to access, but in order to view the records there, you need to accept the terms and conditions when prompted). Those records are considered reliable sources for the France Project.

I was unable to find a marriage record there for Hans George Angstadt and Eva Catharine Schafer in Obermodern or Zutzendorf around the 1725 time frame that you listed in your post, but I found a marriage record which may be theirs in the Gumbrechtshoffen Oberbronn parish records (Gumbrechtshoffen is where you had indicated their son John was born):

"Registres paroissiaux et documents d'état civil," images, des Archives départementales du Bas-Rhin (http://archives.bas-rhin.fr/detail-document/ETAT-CIVIL-C577-P2-R127992#visio/page:ETAT-CIVIL-C577-P2-R127992-625424 : accessed 20 August 2020), Périodes: 18e siècle, Marriage Hanß Georg Angstätt and Eva Catharina Schäfer, Feb 1726, image 297 of 331, p 580; Etat des fonds des Archives départementales du Bas-Rhin > Registres paroissiaux et d'état civil numérisés > Gumbrechtshoffen Oberbronn - Registres Paroissiaux (Avant 1793) - Paroisse protestante (Avant 1793) - Registre de baptêmes mariages sépultures 1702-1766 - 3 E 174/1.

Here's the info that I am able to abstract from the record (translated to English):

  • Place: Gumbrechtshoffen
  • Marriage date: Feb 1726
  • Groom: Hanß Georg Angstätt, of Zützendorf
  • Bride: Eva Catharina, daughter of deceased Hanß Adam Schäfer

If that's the correct marriage record for the individuals in question, you may also be able to find baptismal records for their children toward the front of that same record collection.

Thank you so much for the response.   This is very helpful, didn't realize this resource exists,

Glad to help! Some of these records have historically been available on FHL microfilms, but having online access to the Bas-Rhin Departmental Archives record images makes research in these collections somewhat easier now.

This Zutzendorf baptismal record (top entry on left page) may be the baptismal record for Hans George Angstadt:

"Registres paroissiaux et documents d'état civil," images, des Archives départementales du Bas-Rhin (http://archives.bas-rhin.fr/detail-document/ETAT-CIVIL-C558-P2-R312740#visio/page:ETAT-CIVIL-C558-P2-R312740-4034244 : accessed 21 August 2020), Lieu: ALSACE > BAS-RHIN > SAVERNE (arrondissement) > BOUXWILLER (canton) > OBERMODERN-ZUTZENDORF > Zutzendorf, Périodes: 17e siècle, 18e siècle;, Baptism Georgius Angstatten, 23 Feb 1696, image 54 of 168; Etat des fonds des Archives départementales du Bas-Rhin > Registres paroissiaux et d'état civil numérisés > Zutzendorf - Registres Paroissiaux (Avant 1793) - Paroisse protestante (Avant 1793) - Registre de baptêmes mariages sépultures 1653-1732 - 3 E 562/1.

Here's the info that I am able to abstract from the record (translated to English):

  • Parents: Jörg Angstatten, resident here, and wife Anna Maria
  • Child: Georgius, son, born 20 Feb 1696, baptized 23 Feb 1696
