Question
My father and I have been looking into his family history and have a hit a small roadblock. One of the records mentions a birth records in Heimweiber, Bayern (Bavaria). We tried to find anything about it, but have had no such luck.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you in advance!

Answer
Hi,
my resources are perhaps the same as yours. I find no current place in Germany with the name "Heimweiber" (Engl: Home women, house-wife). The names of places changed during the many wars in Europe and Bavaria's borders shifted some what after political power changes. Sorry. Please try a German genealogist for help.
