Margaretha Mackhen was born August 19, 1681 in Bissingen an der Tech, Wurttenberg Germany. |from Family History Library Film 1055840, 1680-1783 Bissingen an der Teck, Wuerttenberg Lutheran records.  She was christened the next day in the Lutheran church by her parents Michael Mackh and his wife Barbara Schemppen. 

The families had lived in this small town for hundreds of years. In the area around Stuttgart, there are 3 towns that could fit the name "Bissingen". They are Bissingen, Bisingen, and Bissingen an der Teck. After a careful study of the 1930's document we believe it is the Bissingen an der Teck. This village is south east of Stuttgart

The LDS library has a microfilm of the Lutheran church in Bissingen. All the information here comes from this document. Reading the old German scrip is a challenge. We can scan the piece so you can attempt to see it also. Just click under Contact Us with the request.  One wonderful form has the family record. It includes the birth and death date of the bride and groom, their parents, and all their children with birth , confirmation and death.  There is also a Compliation of Church Records -Western European It is searchable by name and it is all printed out for you.  My copies of the original church records concurs with the CD.  It is put out by LDS.
