I want to know who Joseph's parents were.

+6 votes
When Joseph Fix and his wife Elizabeth moved to Breda, IA, the parish priest recorded the following information about him:  Born April, 24, 1838 in Edelbach Unterflank and Ashaffenburg Bavaria Europe, son of Mich Fix and Cath. Schwarzkopf.

I have all the information about Elizabeth but cannot find anything about his parents and his siblings.  He immigrated to the US in 1865 or 66.


Can anyone help?

According to https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edelbach there is only one Edelbach in Germany which belongs to the district of Aschaffenburg in the region of Unterfranken.

It is a part of Kleinkahl: http://wiki-de.genealogy.net/Kleinkahl which belongs to the Archdiocesis of W├╝rzburg, where there is an archive with the catholic church books.

PS: Their cemetery at least has some Fix: https://grabsteine.genealogy.net/indilist.php?nachname=FIX&b=&cem=5246

PPS: The tag should by Bavaria or Bayern not Baden-W├╝rttemberg
