Local genealogists are available for research of many area archives. There are comprehensive family genealogies available to view on Wednesdays at the Jeffris' library in the Wolf Haus.
Located in the Valentine Wolf Haus, the Jeffris Family Foundation Research Library is a resource for anyone looking to find out more about their family roots, in the immediate area of the Village of Germantown, including Dheinsville, Goldenthal, Rockfield and other first settlements. Since the 1970s, the Germantown Historical Society has been collecting pertinent records, photographs, maps, genealogy and books that can shed light on the history of the area. Included in the library is an index of over 75,000 individuals that are featured in the collected manuscripts, records and documents. We hold census records, tax rolls, insurance ledgers, as well as documents pertaining to the Christ Church, such as burials, weddings, confirmations, and baptisms. All of these records are open to researchers.
We have a collection of 1100 (and always growing) historic photographs from the area.
