Does anyone have any suggestions for me to locate records on my Grandfather (from Stettin, Germany). According to my family, he was in the "Danish Navy".

You didn't provide a time period for his service, so here's a general outline on Danish military records. You'll see that many native germans signed on with the Danes in the Danish Army and Navy- especially in the late 18th and the early 19th century.

This is the telephone number for the archives, you can call and save some time and get some advise on which records they have and how to request them.

I will call them. He was in the Navy between 1885 to 1890.
Thanks again.
