Germany to Michigan 1800’s – 1900’s Immigrant Ancestry Research Inquiry:
I am in search of baptism, confirmation and marriage certificates for Augusta Lux and Gustav Albert Rahn. Both were born in Hinter Pomern Germany. Gustav was born April 21, 1862 in the Village of Columbia in Hinterpommern Germany near Berlin. Augusta was born August 13, 1865. They were married October 4, 1889 in the Buda Evangelical Lutheran Church in Hinter Pomern, Germany. The minister was Rev. L. Shulz. After the marriage both emigrated to Michigan. Signed, Martha xxx
Heirlines Professional Genealogy Tip:
We would be glad to assist you with your genealogy research. However, the names “Columbia” and “Hinter Pommern” (and variations) do not appear in any of our German gazetteers and atlases. To trace your ancestors we need to search for their naturalization records, and passenger lists at the time of their arrival in America. These documents will provide us with information about their birthplaces, and family names. We would also search vital records, newspaper accounts, church records, and other sources to learn about their origins.
We have daily access to the extensive genealogical and historical records collection of the famous Salt Lake City, Utah genealogy library, The Family History Library (www.familysearch.org) as well as many on-line subscription databases such as www.ancestry.com and www.heritagequest.com which are used to provide professional genealogy research services to document your family tree properly.
Heirlines is a full-service professional genealogy firm that provides custom family tree in-depth research on an hourly fee basis, but in blocks of time from eight to 120 hours. For a U.S. to German origin project we recommend beginning with at least a twenty hour block of time, which allows us to search both US record sources, and German sources as well.
Please go to Heirlines website http://heirlines.com to order online the needed services or call us at 800.570.4049 to discuss more options or to order by telephone.
