Locating Town

Hello,

My family is from (1900) Stadt Langsfeld, Thuringia. At one time I found this town but cannot find it now. Has the name changed? Can you help, I am looking for the town's webpage.

thank you

Hi Stefan,

I looked in my German Shell Atlas and there is no Langsfeld. You probably need to find an old atlas to see where it is and then you can easily find out what it is called today. Good luck!

Maybe it's 'Stadtlengsfeld', a village 7 km east of Bad Salzungen:

my family is also from Stadt-Lengsfeld - my great-great grandfather was born there in 1812 - his biography in Volume II of "History of Chicago" says that the full name was Stadt-Lengsfeld, Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach, later (in 1885) a state in the then "new German Empire" - I have a Michelin map which locates Eisenach but nothing more definite on Stadt-Lengsfeld -

I wonder if you have received any reply's to your posting? - I am planning a trip to Germany next summer to try to learn about all four of my grandparents, i.e. eight great-grandparents? -

Thank you,
