I am trying to find the place of origin for my Muth ancestors. I suspect they came from somewhere along the Baltic coast because there is a family story about one of them finding a chunk of amber as a child and being told that he would have to turn it over to the local authorities, because all valuables automaticly belonged to the king. This was in the 1870s, and they all spoke German, even several generation after coming to the U.S. The only place name I have is Odernheim on a marriage certificate (hand written), but I cannot find this town on a map. Help! Is there a regional archive I should contact? Thanks.
