Thomas,

To update you, the Leuppusch/Woisselsdorf, Germany film has finally been sent to the LDS center I chose. I was able to view the film a few days ago. After looking at hundreds of records, I have begun to get a feel for the format of the recordkeeping, such as which records are baptisms, marriages, or burials, and which names are the subjects', parents', witnesses', etc. I was able to identify a few records of baptisms for the two couples' families that I'm researching.

My next step is to go back through as many records as possible and pick out the ones I want copied. Then I'll know what assistance I might need to better translate them. With the holidays upon us, I think it will be January before I can get to that point.

I will update you again in a few weeks. Meanwhile, happy holidays!

Thanks,
Anne
