- Feb 18, 2005My grandfather was born in Liebstadt (I don'tknow which one, as I
understand there are two) November 11, 1883. He did an
apprenticesship as a baker from 1898 to 1901 in Danzig. Then he went
on ships, presumably as a baker, as his workbook showed about 6 or 7
different ships until he emigrated to US in 1909. I know his parents
lived in Berlin in the early 1920's and owned a flour mill. I am
trying to find any information I can on his parents. My grandfather
had many siblings, but the only ones I know are a brother Fritz, who
died in Pforzheim in the 1970's, and three sisters--Kate, Lotte and
Liesbeth whom I believed all died in Berlin in the 1970's.
Can someone offer suggestions where I may look for Prussian and/or
German records of birth, death, etc/.
Also, can someone suggest a professional genealogist that specializes
in records for this area.
