Does anyone know how firm this source is? I found a film for Weissenburg in the Alsace area and will probably take a chance and order it this week. If it is a firm source, we could really get lucky because the records go back to 1596.

Hi I have recently been trying to get some overseas information. I will send you an email that i recieved today with some online links for immigtration records ship mainifests. I have gotten the same information regarding that village.
I have a page with alot of Whipkey info and plan to add the tax records containing the whipkey info. I have been to the alsace site but they haven't writen back they seem to have a lot of old info.
We haven't found much on the name overseas from what I gather.
Hipge is the original name that was changed to Whipkey. HMMM!
also Whip is a name that has been added to the list and a couple other trans.
If you find something let Don Shaffer know as he sends it to us all.
Thanks and please reply,
Rockey

Today I ordered films from both churches in Weissenburg, Alsace. It takes at least 3 weeks for them to come in, usually 4 or more. I'll be checking under Whipkey, Hipge and anything else that sounds close to those pronounciations. (In that time period the Germans frequently interchange g and ch, too) I line read the German records so we'll pick them up if they're there. I'm changing my email so please just use my husband's (butchlk@gte.net) if you need an email address. If I find them in Weissenburg, I'll be glad to send the information to Don Scheaffer or anyone who is interested in it.

Since this is brief, I'll post it here. Johann Jacob came to America on the ship Neptune. He sailed from Rotterdam to Cowles, England, to America. (A common route for that time period) He landed at Philadelphia and took the Oath of Allegiance on October 4, 1752. (Same day) He signed his own name. (Very neatly!)

Sorry - Captain John Mason was the master of the Neptune. It's late in Ohio.

Do you have Docs? If so can you scan or copy them or send a copy to me so I can add this to the Whipkey site?
This type of record only on micro film is hard for others to see. but when you are viewing them if you copy to notepad and send me an attachment I can edit and place it in the HTML.
I would love to have the docs to show everyone who will be using my site to update their own.

Will have to do some digging to get you the documents. I have been working on another family line for the last year and do not have much on the Whipkey's yet.
