Looking for information on Lutheran churches in the Rising Sun, Dearborn, , Ohio, Counties area in 1865-1870.  I have a civil marriage record for my great grandparents showing Christion Kerhbul (sp?) as Minister.  Looking for Louis Vollmer in  church records, probably German speaking. His wife was Mary Sudbrock Aschermann a widow with 7 children, m. 21 Feb. 1867

You might contact the library genealogist at the Dearborn County Public Library. They have many of the area church records available in microfilm and will do look-ups very inexpensively.  I know I found baptism, confirmation, and marriage records for my ancestors at St. John's Lutheran Church in Aurora there.

I am looking for further information on Stephen Chunn, son of Major John T Chunn and Matilda Le Marche, possibly a death record or birth record that may list a full given name. He was born in 1835 and died supposedly in Indiana around April 1897 in Vermillion County IN.

The site has often explored the stories of American Civil War pensioners who returned to Ireland, and their dependents (see for example here, here and here). I usually carry out this research by lo…

Looking for  death records Decatur Co. In  prior to 1857 for Jesse Raymond Harrell.  There are no bibles or family records to indicate the death date or even the cause,only Court Records for Guardianship of Children to give a possible date of death. There was other family members that died in that year which leads me to believe  a "natural occurrence " or accident happened.  Any suggestions?

Hello! I am researching my genealogy and was wondering if there is any way to search divorce records from around 1949? I believe it was in Crawford county but I'm not one hundred percent sure. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

FISHBACK, Curtis and Cora Belle Sterling genealogy. 
Hello, I'm looking for information on the Fishback family who may have lived in Whitley County, IN. Is there a place to go to find land record between 1880 and 1930 for that area?

Thank you

Charles Milton. Claimed he was born Sept 6, 1864 five miles north of Kokomo to Nancy Bennett and Henry Milton. But I can't find anything to confirm that. Charles was in Mexico by 1892. Many of his male descendants have that same long nose. Anyone else researching Miltons?
