Morschheim Miscellany

     This page includes a collection of photos, documents and information about Morschheim, which is often misspelled "Morschine" in American records and documents about the Zink family. I have not been able to find a good comprehensive English-language article about the village or its history, so this material will have to serve as a substitute until such an article becomes available.

    Several photographs of current-day Morschheim, courtesy of Astrid Neumann, can be viewed by clicking on the Picasa web album below.  The photographs include the Zinck house at Hintergasse 31, constructed in 1759, which may have been the house where John Zink and his family lived. 

    A Google map of Morschheim has also been inserted on this page.  You can zoom in and out and, by clicking on the "Sat" tab, look at aerial photos of the village and surrounding area. You will be able to see the the neighboring villages of Orbis and Oberwiesen, which were also served by the Morschheim church.

    Several other items are attached at the very bottom of this page and may be viewed by clicking on them, including Morschheim's coat of arms, a photo of the Evangelical Church (also called "Mauritiuskirche"), and a detailed street map of the village.

    Finally, you may enjoy looking at
Morschheim's web pages (in German) at http://www.kirchheimbolanden.de/1004_1031.html (click on "Tourismus" to view some pictures of the town) and http://www.morschheim-direkt.de/.  An article about Morschheim appears in the German-language version of Wikipedia at http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morschheim.
