"The marriage record doesn’t name his father, suggesting he may have been illegitimate. How can I locate records for his mother in Hagendorf?"
There was a time when a young man could not marry until he completed his military service. A young couple would have children prior to being married. The children were then legitimized at the time of marriage. I found this in my family in Baden at this same time period around 1800. I suspect that this was not a rare practice as it is reported in genealogy references as something to be aware of.
I recently had a marriage record from 1810 translated, and found that my ancestor Lenhard Zitzmann was the son of Maria Weiman, who apparently lived in Hagendorf in the Palatinate (Hagendorf in der Pfalz). Is that the same city as Hagendorf in Bavaria? The marriage record doesn’t name his father, suggesting he may have been illegitimate. How can I locate records for his mother in Hagendorf?
