ID: I8159 Name: Anna Maria SIEBER Surname: Sieber Given Name: Anna Maria Sex: F Birth: ABT 1685 in Pfaz, , Bav. Death: ABT 1718 in Germanna, Spotsylvania, Va. _UID: 7A822F907B41D511BD9EBDC3D7961731ED8E Note: Evangelical Lutheran Parish Registers of Marienthal,Pfalz. The booklets are in the Library at Germanna. I am not sure if we have the complete set or not. They were published in Edinburg, VA. One of the editors, I believe it was Gary Zimmerman passed away a year or two ago. As to whether they are still available for purchase I am not sure. The last time I heard from Johni Cerny she was in Utah. Perhaps someone on the list or at rootsweb knows if she is still there. One clue might be this, and this is just a suggestion, I noticed that the cover of the booklets that Klaus Wust had for sale was very similar to the covers of "Before Germanna". They could be by the same publisher. They may have contact information in them. I am not in VA this week, but I will try to remember to look up the publisher next week when I return and put it on the list for you. As John says, the books are a very good beginning for researching our Germanna Germans before they came to Virginia. An example of their information is the proof from marriage records that Nicholas Yager/Yeager was married to Anna Maria Sieber, legitimate daughter of Christian Sieber. It also shows Nicholas father as Paul Yager. It list's grandfathers, but seems to have skipped a generation so this part still needs work. This one marriage record put to rest the mistaken idea that Old Nick was married to Mary Wilhoit, as there is no record of marriage for Nicholas in the colonies except for his marriage to Susanna Klaar Webber Crigler, widow of Joseph Weaver and Jacob Crigler and sister of Michael Clore. There is also a list of the 4 sons of Nicholas and Anna Maria who were born in Germany, none of whom lived to make the journey to the colonies. Hope this helps. Thom

I think the daughter with the middle name of Maria is the "Mary" who survived the trip to America. Wasn't the first name usually a family name and the middle the one by which the person was addressed? Also, based on their note in the Chapter 6 list, Zimmerman and Cerni evidently thought Anna Maria was the Mary on the importation paper. See the line they inserted below the name of Marie Gertrud: "Nicholas Jäger (Yager) wf. Anna Maria nee Sieber son Adam b. 1708 dau Maria Barbara b. 1707 dau Marie Gertrud b. 1711 above two not on proof of importation dau Anna Maria b. 1714 dau. anna Margaretha b. 1716" Betty

This is a Message Board Post that is gatewayed to this mailing list. Surnames: JAGER, SIEBER, YEAGER, YAGER Classification: Query Message Board URL: Message Board Post: I visited several of the Yager/Jager sites in Germany today. The sites I visited were Winnweler, Falkenstein, and Marienthal. Nicholas JAGER b. abt 1678 m. Anna Maria SIEBER on 11 May 1706 in Marienthal. They lived in Falkenstein and their children were christened in Winnweiler and Marienthal. When I was at Winnweiler, I stopped by the offices for the Protestant (Evangelish) Church. The secretary was nice enough to let me borrow the keys so I could go into the church. The current church building is the "new" church and was built in 1749. The original church that Adam JAGER would have been baptized at is in the area of the current altar. Winnweiler is a very nice town. It has a city hall, and a nice shopping area in the town. It is by far the better of the three towns. The records from the early 1700s are not located here, but in a larger city in Germany. I?m currently stationed in Kaiserslautern, Germany and the LDS church here has a family history center and the records are on microfilm. I'll review the records here in Kaiserslautern at the LDS Family History Center. Falkenstein met the description that other visitors have already described. The area is very pretty. I'll probably return and go hiking in the area. I also took a picture of the Protestant Church in Marienthal. Wasn't able to find out anything about that church. There was no apparent office in the area and no sign on the church. Since all of these sites are within 30 miles of where I am currently living, I'll be visiting them again. If anyone would like any pictures, I?ll be glad to e-mail them to you. Dan Change Date: 28 Jul 1999 at 01:00:00
