I keep getting emails about the service, saw the price started at $1500 (I think) and thought it was too high, but I do have a couple of brick walls and occasionally think, hmmm.

The brick wall thatís making me crazy right now is Johannes Conrad Krigbaum, Frederick MD, married to Anna Marie ?

Tons of trees on ancestry have linked Anna Marie Devilbiss, daughter of Caspar Conrad, but if they had bothered to look a little further, they are linking her marriage to Jacob Ramsburg to Krigbaum.

I have all the church records for the kids, and Anna Marie no last name is listed.

Iíve seen Anna Maria daughter of Hans Michael Devilbiss orAnna Maria Weis, or just Anna Maria we gave up.

So ó has anyone used a pro, and did they help?

No, like you, I periodically consider it for my brick walls but then I think it's way too much money and ultimately, I'll be frustrated if they are able to find something I was not. The whole joy of genealogy is the thrill of finding something new myself.

First off ó the marriage year is the same as the Devilbiss/Ramsburg marriage. And my past research was Hans Michael, found two Anna Marias. Which in German families of the time means Anna Maria 1 passed away. AnnaMaria 2 was 10 years younger. I canít imagine a 12 year old girl marrying a 31 year old man. Let alone a 31-year-old man marrying a two-year-old and her giving birth to next year just doesnít going to happen.

The brick wall that’s making me crazy right now is Johannes Conrad Krigbaum, Frederick MD, married to Anna Marie ?

So — has anyone used a pro, and did they help?
Hmmmm..................Frederick County, Maryland, or Allegany County, Maryland, or both?

Allegany was part of Frederick until 1776 and then part of Washington until 1789. So you could have a situation where the records are stored in different counties, or a family that moved west from Frederick.

Either way, you may want to look into Allegany County Maryland resources if you haven't already. Kreighbaum is a bit of a "prestige" name around these parts. I recognized it instantly from Corriganville, Maryland, once known as "Kreighbaum" if memory serves. Try 'Western Maryland History" if you are on Facebook. Someone there will likely know about the family. It is a closed group, but I know the admin really well if they give you any problems

Frederick Md is where they were married and children baptized. I believe the family lore is Krigbaum was granted land in Allegany County for his Rev War service. I also was under the impression that Anna Maria died 1799-1801, as Krigbaumís final will was written and witnessed in 1802, and Anna Maria was not mentioned.

Please excuse the uncertainty ó as I am at work and doing this from memory. Itís okay, though, Iím married to the boss, who will tell you that I am the boss.

Oh yeah, if Kreighbaum was involved in the purchase or sale of a Deakins Lot (the land grant parcels divvied out soldiers, and sold to squatters after the Revolutionary War) than that Facebook site is absolutely the place to go. There are Deakins Lot experts there who may be able to help.

I wasn't able to find that name (or the alt. spellings) associated with any Deakins Lot grants, but he could have bought parcels from an absentee grantee.........have seen lots of those cases in the old land records.

I had a brick wall with one of my grandfathers, I did call them, the price quoted was $2,400 w/o asking any details from me. No thank you, I figured it would remain a mystery. A year later, one of my grandmothers cousins contacted my sister through fb (For some reason- in our child hood after my great aunt died, no contact, we don't know why-could just be geographical distance and life). He removed all the bricks. My view- sometimes it will just be a mystery, sometimes it just takes time.

Yeah, that's what I mean, I feel like whatever they come back with I'm just going to think "I could have gotten there myself eventually" and then I'll be kicking myself for spending $1,500+ on something I could have done myself.

For $2,400 they better produce my family tree going all the way back to the time of Christ!
