Hi Jelena, I've noticed you are creating many profiles for members of the German nobility, and I'm not sure if you know about the Gothaisches Genealogisches Taschenbuch's which were produced annually. Many of them can be found online and there is a list here http://wiki-de.genealogy.net/Gothaisches_Genealogisches_Taschenbuch They may be a better source than Wikipedia in some instances.

Wikipedia in most of their profiles quotes the Gothaer. So it is accessible although I don't use it directly.

Liebe Jelena,

I was fascinated by your reference to the birth of my great-great-grandfather (and so my great-grandfather) in "zu Neugericht, Kreis Waldenburg in Preußen." Silesia! But I have since discovered Waldenburg, Baden-Württemberg, which of course makes more sense. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Waldenburg,_Baden-Württemberg I also discovered that Ebersbach as der Fils is in the District of Donaukreis and 5 kilometers from Uhingen, Donaukreis, the birthplace of my grandfather, Herman Julius Dressler. So this geographical location obviously makes more sense in the family narrative. And I will use in my family tree.

Again, many many thanks for your efforts.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen, David PS - Any thoughts yet about Johanna Karolina's possible maiden name?

Dear Jelena,

Now I know why you are so highly regarded in the WikiTree community!

The document you have so painstakingly translated is especially important to me as it is the only record found thus far of my great-great-grandfather, Johann Gottfried Droßler. And of course it adds information important to knowing the early years of my great grandparents before they came to America.

Through a number of DNA findings on both 23andMe and Ancestry, I have traced back in time either siblings and/or first cousins of my great grandfather. Perhaps one day I will be able to establish the connections.

I found your Meet Our Members interview on WikiTree made in 2019. The remembrances of your family are fascinating. There is so little I know about mine. The standard answer my mother would give me when I asked about our family’s nationality was that I was a “mutt.” Indeed, it is only now that I am beginning to understand how disparate my family was. My maternal grandparents were German and Polish/Russian (probably Lithuanian) and my paternal grandparents were Estonian and Flemish Belgian and along the way my father was born in England.

I began my family search several years ago and was first able to trace my Belgian line by reading records found at FamilySearch (Flemish is akin to German). I knew little about my Estonian grandfather until just this past month when through the help of the Estonian community on Facebook I was sent the record of his birth. This opened a connection to his family tree on geni.com that traced his roots all the way back to my sixth great-grandfather, Aru Toomas, a serf chased from his home in 1690 by Swedish invaders. On the other hand, my success searching for family in Germany has been satisfactory, if limited. Lastly, the origins of my mother’s grandparents are a major mystery. The US Census records show Poland/Russia, but 23andMe suggests Lithuania.

Well I am an old man and a, beginning to ramble. But one last question. Is there a name in the record (indecipherable) of the maiden name of Johanna Karoline? Or is that wishful thinking?

With my kindest regards and appreciation for your efforts,

David

Dear Jelena,

Much thanks for reviewing the marriage record of my great grandparents. If you have a few minutes, I would ask that you go through the document again and review some of my interpretations.

The first column is of course their names, My great grandfather’s anglicized name is Wilhelm Julius Dressler. Here it is shown as Wilhelm Julius Droßler. My great grandmother is Christiana Ankele (although I find it difficult to read “Christiana”).

The second column has something to do with their religion. But I am not able to even guess at what is shown.

The third column gives us the names of their parents. We can see Johan(n) Gottfried Droßler is his father. The next line is indecipherable to me. Then we see his mother is Johanna Karolina, geb. Kastin? Martin? Any guesses at her maiden name? Then, although it is not easily read here, I know her parents to be Johannes Ankele and Maria Ursula Rieker.

The fourth column, I have no idea.

The fifth column however shows when and where they were born. Although it is difficult for me to read in this document, I know he was born 3 Sep 1853 (on his gravestone), but where was he born? (Neu......???) And she was born 30 Nov 1848 (on her gravestone), and was she born in Ebersbach?

The next two columns show, Bans posted (?) 28 Apr 1878 and Marriage 6 Mai 1878.

I know how difficult it may be for you to go through this document again, but any further information you can provide would be enormously appreciated.

With my best personal regards, David Martin

First column: He is Wilhelm Julius Droßler, she is Christiane (see the difference between the middle A and the last letter?) Ankele.

Second column has 4 informations. The last one is about religion and it says they are both protestant (last line - beide evang.) Third column: Johann Gottfried Dreßler ... zu Neugericht, Kreis Waldenburg in Preußen (see here: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Landkreis_Waldenburg_i._Schles.#Gemeinden). Johanna Karoline... Johannes Ankele, Bürger....in Sch... Maria Ankele 4. column: Both are bachelor respectively spinster. 5. column: 3 Sep 1853 Neugericht and 3 Dec 1848 Ebersbach (could it be her baptism day? 3 Dec 1848 was a Sunday). I assume that Ebersbach in Schlesien, found one in Kreis Görlitz (see https://de.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Landkreis_G%C3%B6rlitz_%28Schlesien%29 and https://www.meyersgaz.org/place/10393006) 6. Bestätigung der bürgerlichen Eheschließung Standesamt Ebersbach, 1. (?)
