Heinrich Hoffmann hoffmann background


So far, my research of the Hoffmann line begins and ends with Heinrich and his daughter Agnes. If you have some spare time and want to read microfilm of German church records, please be my guest!

Heinrich Hoffmann was born in Offenbach, Germany, in 1660 and died September 23, 1727. He and his wife Anna Elisabetha were the parents of seven children.

This Family Register(1) shows Heinrich and Anna Hoffmann's family. I don't know when the entry was made as it shows the children's spouses.



This is from the index (2) to the Baptismal Register. You will note that the oldest child, Johan Jacob, is not included because he was born before 1685 when the register was started.
