If you’re a descendent of the Heil family, or of somebody who married into the Heil family in the Fulda district, these marriage records might help in your research. All of these records can be found in the church books of St. Goar in Flieden. In these books you’ll also find further baptisms, marriages, and deaths not mentioned in this post.

While I am not (as far as I know) related to the Heil family, I came across the name when researching our German ancestor, Michael Eifert. Michael was born out of wedlock in 1806. No father is listed in his baptismal record, but his grandfather was Johann Michael Heil of Magdlos, who I am researching.

I am building out the Magdlos Heil family tree in broad strokes, and since the information in these marriage records isn’t yet digitized (and so not easily found online), I would publish them. I will continue to update these as the opportunity presents itself. Some name spellings and city names may be slightly off. In cases like these, we’re at the mercy of the priest’s penmanship.
