     Ville-En-Vermois.

Bisqueley        Church records       # 1080056    I did not get to look at it at all. 


Bouxieres aux chenes Church records  # 1135385    Saw a reference to a NOEL and possible GERARD think it may be NICHOLAS. There is no index however at the end of some years there is a list of children baptised. Maybe Dann Norton ancestor in on this film Nicholad Gerard I doubt our NOEL. I have reviewed most of it and there are marriages to female Noels particular a Ann Noel recorder but none of  our ancestors.  Ted

Bromeilles, Loiret, France I checked FHC film #1039866 for the Quiers-sur-Bezondes and Notre Dame parishes of Bromeilles, Loiret, France. The film was hard to read, but most of it could be read. I found no records for any of the Seven Family names. This area is well removed from that in which we have found more frequent records of these families. I don't think it has any promise for our searches.

Colroy-La-Roche,  France - Bas-Rhin # 0746171 Church Records Eglise Catholique Sepultures 1686-1787 and other Birth and Marriage records not in our time frame. Records for 1690 - 1736 can be found in the middle of the film, Did not find anything, however the film, Latin Script, is very difficult to read.

du Ban de la Roche, FHL film # 1761695  Nothing before 1736.

Fouchy,  There were three references t o Gerard's in 1723, 1724, and 1726.  One may have been  a given name.

Dinsheim, Bas-Rhin, France-FHL film #0733325  No Seven Families - Jim Ory

Evancelisch, France Bas-Rhin - # 0778658 German church Records Short film excellent records but no items of interest found.

LA Petite Raon  - #1115457  had a Barbara Noel with children by a Valatine Colins.  No other help.

Lenoncourt   1637 - 1792   # 1117626   The umlaut in the Noel name was findable but the records were mostly unreadable. I could not discern other surnames. Someone skilled in French may be able to find a few.

Monbozo -- Vesoul   Civil records   # 1077804    My copy of the micrfiche is not clear will have to relook at the microfiche. 

Raon aux Bois  and Paroissiaux Vosges, Lorraine 1644-1750 
#1115618 were negative except for  Nicole Noel wife of Mathieu Pierre,1701. There were two Gerardin's in 1668.  This town is 50 miles SSE of Nancy.  DN

Senonges    # 108572 Nothing of interest.

Waldersbach  # 0781533 It had a number of the passengers on the Princess Augusta.  It may have had others.  I spotted some names like Muller - Kommer etc but did not reconcile to the ages on the Princess Augusta list.  What I was looking for were NOEL'S and I did not find any.

Wisches, France - Bas-Rhin - # 1071086 & # 1071087 Church Records Eglise Catholique Latin Text Baptism-Marriage-Death 1735 - 1792 No Items of interest found.

Landau Standesamt Parish, , Rheinland-Plalz  FHC Film #   0488333   Nothing found.


Other Information:

1135385 I have look at this film up top about 1723 it is due back on 2/23/99 there is a Antion Robins and Ann Noel prior to 1723. Ted

Colroy la Roche
Plaine
Neuviller la Roche
Rothau
SchirmeckLa Broque
Waldersbach   Film 1761695  item 8  Film 1761692  Item 7.

Some towns we have not looked at [don't know if they have films]

Fouday - 1639-1675  # 1761695
Diesbach - None
Blancherupt - 1793-1882

Ted

             I think we could, for example,   concentrate on comunities within a
             pentagonal area bounded by Hurbache, Anould, Ranrupt, Schirmeck and
            Celles sur Plaine.   Wayne
