I will help researchers in the following areas:
1. Church records for *St. John Lutheran Church, Atwater, MN for the period 1871 to the 1950's. This church has a German background and is located 3 miles north of Atwater. The records include baptism, confirmation, marriage and burial records and very detailed family listings for the 1800's. *NOTE: This is a GERMAN LUTHERAN church.
2. I am willing to assist researchers in tracing their German ancestors back to Germany.

I will do look-ups in the following source:
1. Minnesota Geographic Names, by Warren Upham. (This book lists all the townships, cities, villages, counties, etc., in Minnesota and is helpful in finding the town, township or county in Minnesota where your ancestor lived.)
