I suspect my ggggrandfather was conscripted into the Prussian army about 1870 and was sent to Alsace. Lorraine. He was Polish living in Garczyn, Berent, West Prussia and 21 years old and unmarried. I have no family documents. He was married Catholic in 1872 in Garczyn. Hence no civil records which start 1874. I understand Prussian military records were lost to bombing in 1945. Any idea if trying to determine if he was in the Prussian army is possible.
