For many years I hae been trying to figure out just where my mother's father was born in 1867. The only reference I have says Kries Verden. One other paper just says Hannover. I am certain he meant The Kingdom of Hannover. Does anyone have any ideas where I can further search to find a place that he was born? One of my cousins thought that the place may have started with the letters "L-E" He was in NYC and married (in Brooklyn) before 1900. I have that record.
