Appearance of people of Alsace in 1600's and 1700's

I am looking for pictures that will tell what clothing the people of Alsace - specifically around Wingersheim, Pfettisheim, Griesheim, Bilwisheim, etc... these little towns, wore in the 1600's and 1700's.


I have researched the ancestors of my grandmother's father's mother, Gertrude Reinbold/t, who came to Vanderburgh County, Indiana, USA and married Valentine Schenk. The earliest Reinbolt I have found is Jacques Reinbolt, born ca 1630. He married 1653 in Wingersheim and died 25 December 1704 in Wingersheim.

Pictures give the descendants such a wonderful view of their ancerstors if I can find pictures of representative people and places they came from. This is what I am trying to do.

Other surnames of families in the Reinbolt line going back are: Weckel, Siegel, Schmitt, Arbogast, Armbruster, Schott, Hauswald, Ruhlmann, Holzmann, Amman, Jerome. The Jerome family was from Uberach. All are from Bas-Rhin.

Thank you for any help,
Jeanne
