If you are also researching these lines, or have visited/will be visiting parishes in these towns to view Latin church records, please feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would love to get in touch with others pursuing these towns.
I've used the LDS microfilms to trace these lines back to the early to mid 1700s. Now I'm hoping to go back even further, since I know church records are often available...I'm just looking to see if anybody has already been to the local parishes to view the Latin records.
