Hi. I am new to this list and am thoroughly confused. I have tried to find an area called GOLDWITZ,RUEGEN ISLAND on the BALTIC SEA. I found the Island but not the town/village of Goldwitz.
My husband's great-grandgather was supposed to have been born there in 1843.
Iwould like to find birth certificat, name of parents and/or siblings.
Also; he married an ANNA MARIA REBECCA SCHROEDER , b. abt. 1847, in Altengamme, Hamburg
I do have some family stories but would dearly love to prove or disaprove these stories and find out more about this family.
They immigrated to Saskatchewan, Canada in 1886 with 5 children and Anna Maria Rebecca Schroder's widowed mother: Anna Rebecca Schoeder.
If anyone could tell me, please, where I can find birth records, etc. I would be so grateful,.
Katannya, Alberta, Canada
