I was poking around my brick wall ancestors and I ended up looking for any records about my great-great-great grandmother, Wilhelmina "Minnie" Weinert. According to census records, she was born in March 1852 in Germany. She emigrated to America and lived in Kansas with her husband, Robert Lungwitz. He also was born in Germany.
I found a German baptism record for a Marie Wilhemine Weinert, born 25 March 1852. She was baptized 18 April 1852. Google translate tells me that she was illegitimate, and the record only names her mother.
For comparison, FamilySearch also gave me three other German baptism records.
*Wilhelmine Pauline Weinert, born 20 April 1851
*Emma Auguste Luise Wilhelmine Weinert, born 26 February 1853
*Clara Augustine Dorothea Wilhelmine Weinert, born 8 January 1853
These other records don't appear to match her at all, as they were all born in different months and years than Minnie was.
Given how the record is for a Wilhelmine that was born in March 1852, I'm inclined to believe that this is the baptism record for my great-great-great- grandmother, with her mother's name included.
Can anyone take a look over the record and lend their thoughts on the matter? Here's the link.
Note that I added this record to Minnie's sources. I will move it to a "see also" section if there is disbelief that this is her.
Does this appear to be my g-g-g-grandmother?
The name Wilhelmina Weinert for Minnie comes from Minnie's daughter's certificate of baptism, which my family possesses. It is transcribed on her daughter's profile.
