Hello Ich sende diese Frage mit einem Englisch-Deutsch-Übersetzer, also hoffe es macht Sinn! Ich suche eine Geburtsurkunde für Herman Jacob Windfuhr, der 26 Oktober 1699 geboren wurde; Ich kenne die Namen seiner Eltern nicht. Die Akten sollen, falls vorhanden, in Westfalen gefunden werden: Landeskirchliches Archiv der Evang. Kirche, Lüdenscheid-Plettenberg; Evangelische Kirchengemeinde. Würde jemand das bitte für mich nachschlagen? Ich würde auch gerne verstehen, ob diese Kirchenregister damals von der einzelnen Kirche geführt worden wären? Vielen Dank für Ihre Hilfe oder Informationen. Bonnie Samuel, Iowa, USA
I'm sending this question, using an English to German translator so hope it will makes sense! I am seeking a birth record for Herman Jacob Windfuhr who was born 26 October 1699; I do not know the names of his parents. I'm told the records are to be found, if exist, Westfalen: Landeskirchliches Archiv der Evang. Church, Lüdenscheid-Plettenberg; Protestant parish. Would someone please look this up for me? I'd also like to understand if these church registers would have been kept by the individual church at the time? Thank you for your help or information. Bonnie Samuel, Iowa, USA

Hallo,
im Kirchenbuch von Plattenberg ist nichts zu finden.
http://www.archion.de/p/cafdecc1dc/

Ist aber das reformierte Kirchenbuch.
Ob es auch ein Kirchenbuch der evanglischen Gemeinde gibt kann ich nicht sagen.

Andere Nutzer können da eventuell mehr helfen.

You can find a lot about the Windfuhr family
Plettenberg included. But the family story of the Windfuhr
is written in German and - as far as I know - the google
translator will definitiv not know always  an englisch word for special German words in this paper, what is online to see : Put in the searchword Windfuhr.

Please have a look here:

https://www.archive.nrw.de/archivsuche

Put in the word for search Windfuhr and choose Digital only.

You can order a copy of this history and maybe then step by step look through it at home

with a very good dictionary.

You have to pay for a copy. they will tell you how much.

Here is the
number of the files you have to ask for a copy:

Landesarchiv NRW Abteilung Westfalen
W 005 / Msc. VII (z.T. Dep.), Nr. 6419 - d
Konrad Windfuhr, Windfuhr. Die Geschichte einer Familie aus der ehemaligen Grafschaft Mark

The following files are not online - Windfuhr family in Lüdenscheid:

Stadtarchiv Lüdenscheid
LS Druckschriften Nr. (LS Druckschriften), Gr 5.379
Familie Windfuhr vom Honsel in Lüdenscheid

Familie Windfuhr vom Honsel in Lüdenscheid

Stadtarchiv Lüdenscheid

BG.

LS Druckschriften Nr. (LS Druckschriften), Gr 5.234
Familie Windfuhr vom Honsel in Lüdenscheid -

Eine Chronik mit 49 Erlebnisberichten und 25 Fotos

ofcourse I cannot guarantee that you will find the right
but it seems there is a lot would you could need.

Have a look in Meinerzhagen (not far from Plettenberg). On the 31st of March 1744 the widower Herman Jacob Windfuhr marries his second wife Anna Gerdruth Lüdden.

http://www.archion.de/p/dcc18479b7/

His first wife Anna Catharina dies on 22nd of January 1743 (after a birth) at the age of 38 years and 3 months.

However, I haven't found the birth of Hermann. At least not at the date you mentioned. Maybe you can find his first marriage and his children there, have a look.

When I have the time I will have a look for the other digital file
what a little bad to read and I
have some problems with my eyes. But I will try and find out
if there are mentioned in that paper a Herman Jacob W.
.............................................

(Just I saw that another one wrote to your inquiry in the forum
and sayed, he found a Windfuhr in Meinerzhagen - but not a birth
for the one you are looking for.

Your Hermann Jacob W. * 1699 could be this one who merried second time. His place of living was here mentioned "Imbeck"
If you have an email-adress I could send a copy of this entry
if that makes any sense for you.

The church entry is as follows.
marriage 1744 March 31
Herman Jacob Windfuhr, Wittwer zu Imbeck,
mit Anna Gerdruth Budden,
Friedrich Budden zu Nortfeld eheliche Tochter.

(Herman Jacob Windfuhr, a widower from Imbeck, with
Anna Gerdruth Budden, the legitime daughter of
Friedrich Budden from Nortfeld).
-------------------

Maybe you can find other searchers for the Windfuhr, you can use

https://meta.genealogy.net/search/index

above right "Metasuche" you can type in maybe also use Windfur
or Wintfur

You could also ask for help here:
