Heiner Family Research

We have had lots of success in finding more about our Heiner and Dietzel relatives who lived in what was once the Sachsen-Meiningen area of Thüringen, Germany, but there is still lots of work to be done making sure our records are complete and accurate. Our immediate goal is to find out what happened to the children of Martin and Adelgunda's siblings and half-siblings, then obtain copies of the parish register entries for our family in Germany. Copies of the German parish register documents with the transcription and translation will eventually be loaded to the specific person on FamilySearch's Family Tree. Please be patient and check back periodically to see if the record has been added.  

Family members, click here for access to the research reports.

If you can read German script or know someone willing to help and donate their time to translate and / or index the parish records, please let us know. We would love the help.

If you have questions, please contact Dana Palmer, CG at
