One Person at a Time...Agnes

~Even though I have a lot of people in my family tree, I also have a lot of "holes" that need more research. Over the next few months, I am going to attempt to patch up those holes by doing research one person at a time- starting at the beginning of the list~

Agnes- I actually have 2 Agnes' that I needed to research so I'm putting them in the same blog post.

1. Agnes
Before Research: 
My 11th great grandmother, unknown birth and death. She married Johann Spielman (1609-1670) and they had at least 1 son: Heinrich Spielman (1646-1706). 

After Research:
I was unable to locate her last name, unfortunately. She was born about 1609 in Germany and died between 1665-1674- according to some member trees.
Johann and Agnes married in 1640 in Germany.

2. Agnes V.

  1. So much out there that you need to go to the source makes it difficult to answer questions. Especially when you don't know the source.
