The 40th post of the 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks highlights an October ancestor. The never before profiled in my blog ancestor of October birth is Joannem Marinum Goetz.
Like all of my old-country German ancestors, I have very limited information on my 5th great grandfather. What information I have has been obtained from the index of German births, baptisms and marriages found on Family Search. I hope one day to examine the records that the index is compiled from. Original records or microfilms of the originals may give more information.
Joannem Marinum Goetz was christened in the the Katholish church in Forbach, Baden Germany on 2 Oct 1761. The index provides the same date for the birth date.
On the 15th of October 1792 he married Maria Elisabetha Hoffmann in Forbach.
They had at least two children, their son Phillipus, born in 1797 was my 4th great grandfather.
The death date for Joannem is unknown.
