I had sent Roy a note, along with Terry Sappah, Nancy Plowman, and Lena Peters because of a couriosity that I discovered in the GenServ databases yesterday. All of these contributers have Widmann family data within a 13 mile radius of Stuttgart. (Ours are from Mönsheim about 10 miles away.) There were no matches found yet, but the possibility is high.
The reason I looked at the GenServ databases, after not looking for some time, was they sent me a dunning notice that I needed to pay up. The $6 a year is such a chore, so I sent $12 for two years. This database has been a source of many of my Armstrong County family finds, including my Riggles and Allshouses.
I suspect some of the other Armstrong County ancestors are listed there. Send me a note with the name and time period and I will look to see if they are listed. Just go to GenServ to see what it is about.
Another large database I subscribe to is Ancestry. They have many research books digitized and online. The same goes here. You can see what books they have available by going to Ancestry. If you ask to search the database you need a login, but you do not need one to see what volumes of books they have digitized.
In a few weeks I'll update the Helds in Germany data to reflect these new data.
