Research Assistance

Greetings, I am a direct descendant of Johann Wilhelm August Wolf (b 13 Oct 1820) that emigrated to the United States in 1854 from Weimar. Can anyone give me a contact to research his family in Germany? He emigrated with his wife (Wilhelmine Caroline Roemhildt) and 4 children (Charles, Heinrich, Otto and Lena) to Dayton, Ohio.

This is the document I have that places Johann Wilhem August Wolf in Weimar in 1854. We also know that the family attended a Lutheran Church in Dayton, Ohio USA after emigrating to the USA. I have sent a message to the Church of St. Peter and Paul in Wemar requesting research assistance.

Thanks in advance for helping,

Mark Wolf

Hallo Mark,

a very useful means for my research was the archives of the churches of Mitteldeutschland. (
Alas they are not online, so you have to come to Eisenach yourself or you find somebody who does the researches for you.
