|Photos||A3. St. John the Baptist Evangelical Church,|
Neustadt an der Orla, Germany.
This picture of St. John the Baptist Evangelical church was taken by the Author during a year 2000 research trip to Neustadt, Germany. Many Purfürst family members who emigrated to America once lived in and around the village in which this church is located. The parish baptism, marriage and burial registers, dating back to 1600, revealed considerable information on our ancestors.
In 1294 the Landgraf Albrecht von Thuringer (The Count Albrecht Thuringa) and his wife Elisabeth, the widowed Countess of Arnshaugh, built a chapel in Neustadt and dedicated it to John The Baptist. Although having since undergone a number of alterations, the structure seen here was completed in 1534 and is said not to have changed since.
The Lutheran church of St. John the Baptist was the family parish for the Purfürst family groups listed below.
