Tombstone Tuesday - Old German Lutheran Church in Waldoboro, Maine

Old German Lutheran Church
Waldoboro, Maine
Built 1772

Between 1740 and 1753, some 150 families and individuals, mainly from the Rhineland area of Germany, emigrated to the New World and ultimately landed in Broad Bay, Massachusetts - now Waldoboro, Lincoln County, Maine.  Although I couldn't locate any of my Waltz or Eugley relatives in this cemetery, I know that they were part of the community of Germans that settled the area and built this church.

  1. What a beautiful church! I stopped by because I saw "German Lutheran Church" at geneabloggers and wondered where it was located. Maine's not my area, but I'm pleased to look at the beautiful photograph. Thanks for sharing.
