My record for Margaret Kirch comes from http://records.ancestry.com/Margaret_Kirch_records.ashx?pid=153389262

Alsace-Lorraine is the size of Belgium between France and Germany but south of Luxembourg. However Boppard is just to the north of Alsace. It may have been that Alsace was larger and encompassed Boppard, but that was before the German 1st Reich existed.

Margaret Kirch's husband (Anton)'s father was from Nordrhein-Westfalen, which is Westphalia which encompassed both areas at times.
