Variations in records.
Perhaps you can solve an apparent mystery: I have located the birthplace of one Philip(us) Moll as being Stromberg, Rheinland-Pfalz. According to your records, he was baptised on the 25th. February 1833, his parents being Sebastian Moll and Barbara Kiefer. The parents had eight other children born between 1822 and 1841, all births registered at Stromberg.
Your records have been transcribed from the following source:- Deutschland, Rheinland, Bistums Trier, katholische Kirchenbücher 1704-1957, your ref: ark:/ 61903/1:1 D62T-962M:3 Nov.2020. Philippus Moll 25/2/1833 Stromberg, Bad Kreuznach, Preussen, Deutschland, Bistumsarchiv.
I have in my hand a copy of the page of the baptism register of the Catholic church at Stromberg, on which Philip appears but the names of both parents are omitted. The volume is:- Kirchenbuch KB3 Taufen(Baptisms) 1704-1957, held at the Bistumsarchiv Trier. I was assured by one of the archivists at Trier that there is but one record of baptisms.
Can this variation be accounted for? I look forward to your comments.
