The Search for the 'Lost' Monocacy Church

It's been about five long years of study, research, field hunting, and ground penetrating radar, and the church location is not yet known, but we feel that it is certainly not at the Creagerstown location where folks generally believe the 'village' of Monocacy stood.  Recent work has been undertaken in the Moravian Archives in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.  But most of the records of missionary travels are incomplete and not necessarily trustworthy, plus written in old German that few people today can translate.  Can you read our 'mystery' page?  If so, we could use your assistance in interpretation of these documents.
