I am trying to locate my 3rd great grandparents in the area of what was known as Silesia, Germany -- now in Poland. The city was either Breslau or Heinrichau.
His name was ERNST HAASE. Wife unknown. Their son, my 2nd great-grandfather was HEINRICH WILHELM ANTON HAASE, born about 1830. He married JOHANNE CHRISTIANE ROSALIE HENNECKE on 28 Sep 1854 in the Sophia Church in Berlin and afterwards they emigrated to America settling in Jersey City, New Jersey.
Their children were:
1. Rosalie Haase (born abt 1857)
2. Henry William Anthony Haase, Jr., MD (born 1858 NJ)
3. Ida Rosalie Haase (born 1863 NJ)
Dr. H.W.A. Haase is my maternal great-grandfather and had a medical practice in Manhattan as well as Jersey City, NJ.
He married WILHELMINA HAMBERGER in 1887 in Jersey City.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am especially interested in knowing how to locate records in what once was East Germany.
