John Heckewelder Memorial Moravian Church - this is the Gnadenhutten
Does anyone know if the Gnaden church has these available to the public?

I am also interested in the David Peter records as he is an ancestor of
mine. I found this record at the Ohio Historical Society website at
http://www.ohiohistory.org/ipac-cgi/ipac. I assume that the OHS would be
able to give more details about the originals (this record says they were
held by the Heckewelder Moravian Church). These microfilms may possibly be
available for interlibrary-loan, but I haven't yet had a chance to
investigate more thoroughly, so if someone on the list has more information,
I would be interested to know.
