Michael John Neill's genealogy website. Things that cross my path, general research suggestions, and whatever else ...with a little bit of attitude. I don't post "news" just to post it, never post a press release (edited or otherwise), don't feign excitement, and pretty much say what I think.

Transcribing foreign language records is not always as difficult as one might expect. There's a difference though between transcribing and translating.
This image comes from the "family register" of the Immanuel Lutheran Church in Harmony Township, Hancock County, Illinois, and is part of the digital images associated with Ancestry.com's "Evangelical Lutheran Church of America, Records, 1875-1940." As mentioned in an earlier post, the index Ancestry.com currently has to these records does not include the family registers, but if they were microfilmed they can be viewed on Ancestry.com.
