I have recently started research on my German Weber/Webbers. My 3rd great grandfather, Gabriel Ambrose Weber (dob 1818) came to the United States in 1840 with his brothers, John A and William. Gabriel and John A eventually settled in Nauvoo, Hancock County, Illinois.

LIving close to the Family History LIbrary in Salt Lake City has been a big help in my research. The volunteers there are teaching me how to research my German family history and I was able to find my 4th great grandparents and then my maternal Weber 5th great grandparents. What a joy! They've also told me how to go about finding my ancestors even further back.

If any of you have ancestors in SOBERNHEIM or BINGEN (the next records I'll be checking) I'll be glad to look for your names. What I can do is copy the pages and email you a copy. I can only do this if I'm looking at books. It will be up to you to get it translated. The book I looked at for Sobernheim is: "Familienbuch der katholischen Pfarrei St Matthaus Bad Sobernheim", which are Catholic Church records from 1664 - 1880.

I'm sure I'll be inundated with requests and I'm sorry this is all I can do at this time. The books I'm looking at are church records and vital records. I'll just copy the names you'd like and it's up to you to figure out how to read it. I can barely handle English sometimes, yet alone German. lol
