The Benders of Kirchardt, Steinsfurt, Ittlingen, Duhren and Eschelbach, in what was in the 16-1700's in the Margraviate of Baden, may be related.
After tracing my line to Kirchardt I rented the films for the above villages looking for clues since they are all located in a 10-15 mile area. I also copied all of the records for the Benders to about 1800 for future use and posted the early records on ancestry where I have close to 20 Bender trees under the user name benderpainter.
This area was destroyed during the 30-Years War so the church books begin about 1650. Eschelbach's book records 6 early Bender families that lived there before the war and the rest begin documenting a single Bender family from approximately 1650.
Since about 75% the population of this area was destroyed during the war, the government invited settlers from Switzerland and different parts of Germany to resettle the area along with the survivors of the original families.
The question is, are the Benders related and original residents of that area?
I recently completed the Ancestry familyfinder autosomal dna test then also entered my data in GED.match. I found multiple matches with various Bender lines from Duhren, Eschelbach and Ittlingen. These matches were not strong enough to prove a connection but hint that a relationship exist.
The early families settled all over Pennsylvania, in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, and Rutherford, NC, but I am not aware of any members completing Y-DNA testing, which would answer that question.
There are archival records for that area, but they are held at this time in a private archives. The search continues. Mark

Hello,

I have a few tips I have found while researching the Bender - Painter lines.
When you get back to whom you thing may be the immigrant ancestor pay attention to others in the same local with the same surname or a variant thereof. People travelled in groups and when cousin Johannes made good others from the area followed. Y-DNA showed 5 of the 8 Bender lines of Lancaster County, PA, to be related plus many neighbors found in the village of Kirchardt, Baden, such as the Kleins, Barths, Lines, Weidlers, and other emigrated also.
When they left their village to come to American they left in groups from the villages of the same area, so by looking up other passengers on the ship you believed your ancestor came on you can narrow the search for the area of Germany your family came from. By doing the opposite it is possible to narrow the ship lists to find the one your ancestor came on.
One of the best assets is familysearch.org, which offers free online records and indexes for many of the villages with their German births, marriages and deaths. They give their microfilm numbers so you can now order the microfilm online and now view them at many local libraries.
The old German church books are written in old German script. Purchase a few aids or find a good website, start writing the alphabet several times a day until you have it memorized then write your ancestors name in script then the key words and you should know enough to do a basic translation, the more you do it the easier it will become.
I like to work out all of the families in a geographical area to sort them out and the German villages from 1650 to 1800. By looking at the big picture you get a better view of your family and related lines.
Y-DNA is an excellent tool if you can find people willing to participate and we have had surprising results and knocked down brick walls that stood for over 20 years. Familyfinder is interesting, but I'm not sure how accurate for working with pre-1800 families.
Mark

Tracing my family links  beyond these Scottish shores. Can you help?
My family came to Scotland from Ireland in the 1850s.
Roman Catholic records show

Patrick Donnelly
born               1844                                                        Co Longford
married         4.8.1862   Maria Keenan  Templemichael Co. Longford
died              18.12.1921 Lanarkshire Scotland


 Patrick's  father

James Donnelly
born 1824                                                                       Co Longford
married                             29.10.1861                     Bridget McManus
died                                                                               Scotland

So where did this family begin?
Why did they leave Ireland?
Where are their ancestors?

Are there links to Clonodonnell the old pre 1771 name for Killishee in that area?

Grateful to all for any assistance.
