Got German ancestors? Perhaps they were mentioned in one or more of the newspapers published by the German Reformed Church during the years 1830 to 1839.
What's inside this book? Notices of marriages, deaths, accidents, murders, arrests, convictions, hangings, and, oh yes, Good News stories are also mentioned in this text. Lists of students, school and church board members and those who donated to special collections of importance to members of the German church are mentioned, too.
I browsed the index to look for familiar names, then looked into the text to find what had been reported about these persons. A majority of the reports were of people living in and around Pennsylvania. However, the information seemed to be valuable, as marriages announced the groom and bride, along with their parents names and the counties from which they resided. Other reports of those making donations to support their pastors mentioned each by name, amount donated and location of their church. Deaths reported the causes of each person's demise, including ages and circumstances, like lightening strikes or old age.
