In 2015 a research had been performed on the Hanck family from Ottersheim near Landau. Its member Anton Hanck immigrated to the USA, where he married Barbara Kröper, who also came from Ottersheim.

In 2016 another research was carried out to learn about the background of the Kröper family. The results are presented in this report. For the sake of completeness this report includes Barbara Kröper's birth record and Johann Georg Kröper's marriage record, which had already been part of the Hanck research report. It turned out that the Kröpers lived in Ottersheim throughout from the 17th century, so everything said about Ottersheim in the Hanck research report is of meaning to the Kröper family as well.

The situation regarding the availability of records of the 1800s is rather good, modest for the latter part of the 1700s, and rather poor before about 1730, with church records starting in 1732 only.
