Hello Steve,

Thank you for your questions about a Civil War profile you are developing. You sent to me quite a lot of information. The best thing I can tell you is each part of the man's life in the Civil War as well as his travel across unexplored lands will need documentation with sources. Military sources are sometimes harder to find than historical sources. I just say, keep looking, even in Some sources can be listed as secondary sources. But you need primary sources to place him in the Civil War, as well as the regiment he served in. You need the source if he received any awards.

Sorry I missed your message. 'RL' really knocked me off track, and to be honest, I lost my genealogy 'mojo' for a little bit dealing with it all. As I think more about it now, I am not sure about this. I am searching for help and support on tracing my German ancestors, confirming the region they lived in, their home town, and gathering good sourced and verifiable records as I explore this genealogy line. My hesitancy is that I really know nothing about my German ancestors except their names, when they emigrated to the USA, and about their lives here... ie. their lives in Germany are a complete mystery. Being clueless, I need help and direction on exploring my Germany ancestry from knowledgable WikiTree folks who have the time and are willing to educate me, I can't contribute anything to the project itself [yet]. I love learning new things, I am more than willing, motivated & excited to be a student, and to learn how to do German genealogy research from someone/people. I was recently mentored by some wonderful Wiki-folks who taught me the basics of how to read church records written in Spanish, even though my brain is 100% monolingual English. I have to learn the skills necessary to do basic German genealogy research work [find & confirm records on my ancestors] before I can contribute anything of support/value to the German project [Goggle group?]. I would appreciate your thoughts on this... my hesitation is not a 'withdrawal' of my interest in the Germany Project; it's just that I am a 100% clueless newbie regarding Germany, I feel that I need an 'education' first on how to do good genealogy work regarding my ancestors, the fabulous Becker brothers, before I can contribute to the Germany Project.

Hi Steve, I noticed you have hidden a question (about old handwriting) that other people and I had answered on g2g. I think the answers would be useful for many people, so I wonder why you've hidden them?

The Kurfürstentum Hessen, also referred to as Hessen-Darmstadt, had about 800,000 inhabitants at the time you are interested in and Becker is not an unusual name. I'm afraid that you won't get very far unless you can narrow your search down to a town or at least a region. Helmut Jungschaffer

Hi Steve, Thank you for the offer. I am the most gringo of gringo's. When in College, i took 2 years of French.. That French has helped me decipher a little Spanish. The small town I grew up in had no Spanish speaking citizens, thus the high school did not offer any languages.

I usually look for the sources which have a translated version. Or do a google translate..

Glad you took the mentoring course.

The 1850, 1860, and 1870 Census takers caused so many problems for me! One census completely skips the valley 75% of my family lived in. They misspelled so many names that it took me forever to hunt down those records. The problem wasn't their English - it was that they didn't speak Spanish or understand the colonial culture.

I feel sorry for your great-grandmother. It must have been a really hard start to her life.

Hi Steve,

Don't worry for now about those accent marks. You'll learn them over time working with the records. Your valuable research should have given you a great start with documenting your ancestors!

No, the census workers, who as you know had be an educated english speaker able to read and write, recorded her as a servant or slave, never family. Her last name was Lobato, Even though the Church would not recognize/accept her Apache mother, all four of the children were baptized in the Catholic Church in Bernalillo-- got those nice records in hand. What I found as strange was that years ago after I pulled and cited the specific New Mexico census record on-line that used the word 'slave' had later been altered to (on-line) to the word servant. If you were to download the same document now it would say 'servant'. It is just sort of sad that the Lobato relatives who took her into their home, would not recognize her as family. She lived with them for 15 years without that 'acceptance'.

Hi Steve, was the word used on the Census for your 2xgreat-grandmother "criada?" If so, while it is sometimes defined as a servant, it had another meaning in colonial New Mexico. A criada (or criado) was a native or part-native person who was basically adopted by the family. They were usually not treated like servants and sometimes even took on the family's name.
