View Historic Documents of the Heydinger Family

Created by Mike Heydinger on October 1, 2009      

Research done by various family members over the years has turned up many interesting documents relating to the Heydinger's, both here in America and back in Europe.

Some were researched first hand by family members who visited the European family towns of origin, others were obtained through skilled genealogists' research, still others through internet searches.

There are facsimiles of original birth, baptismal, marriage, and death certificates. There are copies of letters, diary entries, and notes handed down from early in the 20th century.

We hope you enjoy viewing these records and getting closer in touch with your roots. We also invite you to make a contribution to this site if you have in your possession or know of the whereabouts of similar materials. Just email us and we'll get with you to expand this section.
