Just a guess and probably not a definite answer but looking at the other villages in categories here, would it be Sindolsheim, Baden-Württemberg?

Just one comment to the categories proposed for Germany. They refer to the Germany after the second World War (for Western Germany) and after 1990 for Eastern Germany. Some of those federal states did not exist before or had other boundaries. E.g. Baden-Württemberg was formed by merging Baden and Württemberg together. In your case I would also probably go for Sindolsheim, Mosbach, Baden, Germany  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/States_of_Germany
I found the following:

Sindolsheim, Rosenberg, Baden-Wuertremberg, Germany

That's a great point Manuela! smiley

Please note the difference between category and location name. Categories for German Roots follow the current political organization not withstanding the name of the location in historic times. Categories for German Roots also do not include anything else but the town and state unless needed for disambiguation.

As for location the one provided by you has the following issues: "Evangelisch" is not a location, it is the religion of the individual in question, either Lutheran or Reformed; Mosbach as "Kreis" existed only from 1939 to 1973, Before that existed a "Bezirksamt" Mosbach which was much smaller than the later "Kreis". If used at all I think it is important to include what political entity is meant to help make sense of the changes in size over time; Baden in 1850 was the Großherzogtum Baden, a sovereign state not in Germany which didn't exist before 1871 but in the Deutscher Bund, a collection os sovereign states previously in the Holy Roman Empire.

Helmut, and others that have taken the time to respond.

Thank you for your answers - because I understand the issues that you mention and am very familiar with the rules for categorization I asked the question.  I am still waiting for an answer - I am hoping that someone will answer the question in this form - the correct category name is:

Category:  xxx, yyy, zzz.
See Maggie's answer above. That follows German Roots' categorization.
