Question
QUESTION: I am researching the history of my Strohmer (also spelled Stromer) family. It appears that my great great grandmother and great great grandmother came to America from the neighboring villages of Reundorf and Frensdorf in Bavaria in the mid-1800s. I'm trying to identify the Catholic diocese and church they and their parents would have  belonged to in those villages in the 1800s.

Thanks in advance for your help.

ANSWER: Hi, this information is very easy to find on the internet, recherché! ...use Google-translator if necessary. Zooming in to Google-Maps will show current places with the web-links.

QUESTION: Yes and no...about the ease of finding the information on the Internet. I had already found the Google Maps of Reundorf and Frensdorf. Unfortunately, I don't speak or read German, so it is harder to find other types of sites. The church site you sent was helpful, and I will work on getting translations for the information on it.
I was hoping to identify which diocese the church in Frensdorf would be in since apparently the diocese archives is where I have to get church record information. Can you tell me which diocese it would be?

Thanks for your help.

Answer
.... Bamberg I think.
