Today marks the 205th wedding anniversary of my three times great grandparents, Alexander Gaertner and Christina Regina who were married at the Evangelisch in Klein Ingersheim, Württemburg. Grandfather Alexander and Grandmother Regina were the parents of 12 children: Johann David (1815), Christina Regina (1816), Maria Magdalena (1818), Johann Frederich (1819), Stillborn Daughter (1821), Alexander (1822), Johann Michael (1824), Stillborn daughter (1825), Johanna Regina (1827), Stillborn son (1830), Christina Regina (1831), and finally Wilhelm Gotthardt (1833). Wilhelm was my immigrant ancestor who changed his name to William G Gardner after his arrival in the United States in 1854.
I am quite fortunate that the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints [www.familysearch.org] had microfilmed the local Protestant church (Evangelisch) records for this town that has now been swallowed up by Stuttgart which allowed me to track this and generations prior. I was able to track baptisms, marriages, and deaths.
