This small book gives a remarkably detailed history of the people and the establishment of Forsyth County, which is the home of Winston-Salem. This land had many owners as the result of a series of royal bequests, land patents and proprietorships.

Other pioneers and settlements soon followed at Kernersville, Friedberg, Friedland and Hope. Eventually, townships were formed, civic groups convened, and a tract was chosen on which to build a county courthouse. Leading citizens ar... View more info

These "church books" consist of birth, marriage, death, baptism, penance and confirmation records.

Marriages performed in violation were not recognized in Germany, however, those who did so were allowed to remarry after returning to Germany.

Four items are contained in this new collection. An anonymous diary that is believed to have been written by Paul Wilhelm Schefer, Auditor of the Hesse-Hanau Hereditary Prince Regimen...
