Hi! I'm trying to connect my family that Emigrated to the US from Mecklenburg in the 1850's. I'm so excited that I *may* have found them (stress may because I am just starting and don't know yet).
I have a few questions for anyone who either knows this area or has done research in this area:
I have found baptism records and marriage records for possible ancestors. Most of the baptism records have this:
grüssow (ag. malchow)- can someone explain what the ag. is standing for?
Also does anyone know what a "wood warren" is? One of my possible ancestors was listed as "dead, wood warren from Strietfeld."
if you have looked at birth/baptism records and marriage records, can you figure out what church these events took place at?
Okay, last question: Bedienter- servant? (per google translate), but Statthalter??? Can someone tell me what that means if you speak/understand German. Google is saying governor?
Thank you so much for any and all help!
