Transcription Services


Need a document or will transcribed?
I can highly recommend Linda at:
Transcription Services Ltd   
www.TranscriptionServicesLtd.com
www.TranscriptionServicesLtd.blog.com

I just had Transcription Services Ltd transcribe a will dated 25 January1640, that I was absolutely struggling with and am very happy with the results.  

You just email them the document(s) and they will provide you a free quote.  

A couple days later, I have the transcription.

Now I have definitive a link to three generations, as his granddaughter is also named, and an original source that can be cited.

Imre Bauman of Bakonyoslop, Veszprem


Below is the transcription of the baptism record of Imre Bauman, brother of  Andrew Bauman.
I had viewed the original record on microfilm years ago at a local Family History Center.  Slowly, but surely, all these records are becoming available online.

"Hungary, Catholic Church Records, 1636-1895,"

Marriage Record of Anna Kollain to Martin Wetzel

 
While searching for more information on our Kollain ancestors on FamilySearch.org, I found the marriage record for Anna, daughter of Ignatz and Maria Kollain.
Most importantly, this record adds more information regarding the issue of her Maria's maiden name.
