Church Records

Ifft/Ift/Eft Family History Project

Kirchenbüchern Records (Church Records)

Ifft/Günther/Bensing and related families


These records are the result of a search by Richard A. Ifft for information on the families and ancestors of Johann Peter and Anna (Günther) Ifft who emigrated from Vollmerz, Hesse, Germany in 1831 and settled in Beaver County, Pennsylvania. He hired a researcher who has access to Hesse (Co Hesse) Church Records in the Schlüchtern.

I took the family group sheets Richard sent me and OCR scanned them using Textbridge 98. I did my best to proof them but since I do not speak German, I may have missed a thing or two. I am providing the information here "as is," if you see anything which looks questionable, please let me know so I can double check it.

Lastly, if you find the Surname you are researching here, but not your particular ancestor, I'm sorry but I have nothing further except the information presented here, no collateral lines were researched. If you contact me I can send you information on how to hire the researcher who collected these records.
