Hello, I'm Kea and I recently found out my g-g-grandfather was Herr E Dusterdieck who was born in Hamburg in 1868. I am completely new to German genealogy as almost all other research I have done has been to do with British ancestors. Can anyone give me any tips for German genealogy? What kind of records were kept and which are the most reliable?
Also, the surname Dusterdieck......does anyone know anything about it; the origin of it, how common it is, what region it comes from?
