    Hi, I am Norman M Kneschk and eserching the Kneschk, Wolsch, Meissner, and Petrick families. I would to come to the museum and do more research, but I am now almost 88 years old and don’t if I can make the trip as my wife is n poor health and I probaly should not drive that far by myself. I was wondering if you have a copy of the Manheim Lutheran church records as I would like to look at it again, because I missed something the first time.

      Thank you!
