Descendants of Leonard Slipp
Index of Names
I found Leonard Slip's baptismal record in registers of the Catholic church at Scheinfeld, Mittelfranken, Bavaria, Germany. They show that he was baptized as Johann Leonard Schlepp on 21 August 1748, a son of Johann Georg Schlepp (Schloepp) and his wife Magdalena. Leonard had an older brother with the same name who was born in 1741 and died in 1746. Here’s the source: Katholische Kirche (Catholic Church), Scheinfeld, Mittelfranken, Bavaria, Germany, parish registers. Held by Archiv des Erzbistums Bamberg (Archive of the Archbishopric of Bamberg), Regensburger Ring 2, D – 96047 Bamberg, Germany. The records are written in Latin. Here’s a summary of the information in each record.
Fiche 147, page 101
1741. 28 August. Georg [Georgius] Schlepp, Protestant [heterodox] widower in Frankfurt, and Magdalena, Protestant [heterodox] widow of Heinrich [Henrici] Fleischmann, were married in Scheinfeld. Then it says, "..Joannes Georgius Schlepp ex franckfurth…" That would be Johann Georg Schlepp of Frankfurt, but I can’t make out the other words.
