When I started working on my 4-greats-grandfather Martin Fast #660209, I hardly knew anything about him. Here is descendant chart that I had:
All the information that I had about him came from the marriage record of his son Isaac Martin Fast #51802 (b. ABT 1790), my 3-greats-grandfather, when he married in Reinland, West Prussia, in 1813. And here is the marriage record:
|Marriage record of Isaac Fast and Catharina Fast, 8 December 1813, Tiegenhagen Mennonite Church, West Prussia, Kirchen-Buch, 1780-1831, p. 102. Accessed at http://mla.bethelks.edu, Congregation #314, on 14 October 2012.|
A couple months ago, I thought I should take another look at the records to see what I could find. That will be Part II.
