Proving the Baysingers in the Alsace

So far, we're short of proof of the Baysinger/Basinger/Bissinger/Besingers in the Alsace, at least for the Jacob line. Why I'm working on this now -- Bas Rhin Parish Records are now online. See for more information.

What I know: Johann Peter BOSINGER/Boesinger b. 1750, son of Jacob Baysinger and Margaret Laemmer. Where? I've read most of the Oberbetschdorf B 1736-1756 book, looking for him. He is not there born in 1750.

We started in Betschdorf, because Susanna BOESINGER (1744-1829, d/o Jacob of Hermersweiler and Margaret LAEMMER) married Phillip Henry MARZOLF (weaver, s/o Johan Philip MARZOLF and Maria Catherina HOLTZMANN) there in 1777.

So it would be good to find that marriage record!

However, The Communities of Alsace A-Z tells me that Betschdorf only came to be named that in the early 1970s. Before, there were the villages of Niederbetschdorf (variant: Niderbetzdorff) and Oberbetschdorf (variant: Oberbetzdorff), Kuhlendorf (German: Kühlendorf; variant: Külendorff), Reimerswiller (German: Reimersweiler) and Schwabwiller (Latin: Suabwilare; German: Schwabweiler; variants: Schwobweiller, Schwoweiler). So all these places need to be searched, as well as Hermersweiler, Kutzenhausen, and Prueschdorf, which have all been mentioned various places.

I would like to get these references pinned down to documentation, and hope to begin that here and on the Baysinger list and boards.
