I hope I can get some help with this. There are some missing parts and likely some errors in my transcription.

Bahlingen - today Balingen is a small town in southern Wuerttemberg.

Not Balingen in Württemberg, but Bahlingen am Kaiserstuhl in Baden, north-northwest of Freiburg im Breisgau.  It was my grandfather's hometown.  Almost everyone in his family was from that village for as far back as records go, which is basically the Thirty-Years' War, since many churches and their records from before then were destroyed.

My grandmother, who was born in Pennsylvania, was apparently of Württembergisch and Pfälzisch descent, but I have had little luck with records on her family.

Ok - did not know, that there`s a Bahlingen in Baden.


There`s no word as this in german - it means Taufpa(h)ten today Taufpaten.
