Genealogy Database

I have a database of over 13,000 individuals including virtually all American Riedesels born before 1980, large numbers of their ancestors, and many other related families from Wunderthausen. No one matches for raw data, but I have access to multiple transcriptions from the original church records for Wunderthausen, have received (and contributed to) the Wittgenstein historical magazine for over 30 years, and have  connections to many researchers over there who have been immensely helpful.

I have a good knowledge of the local history and culture, and of the German language. All of this helps make better sense of the raw data in which genealogists swim these days.
