Why was baptism changed from Weisbach to Strümpfelbrunn?
Hello. I've been seeing entries like this in reference to church records from Strümpfelbrunn:
NameMaria Catharina WeißBaptism Date21 Dec 1738Baptism PlaceStrümpfelbrunn, Eberbach, Baden, DeutschlandBaptism Place (Original)Weisbach, Strümpfelbrunn, , Baden, PreußenBirth Date14 Dec 1738Father's NameJohann Philipp WeißMother's NameAnna Maria
Why was the place of baptism changed from Weisbach to Strümpfelbrunn? The father, Johann Philipp Weiss, is shown as being from Strümpfelbrunn; but was the child actually baptized in Strümpfelbrunn or Weisbach?
