research in Berlin #germany

Miriam Margolyes <yarrawa@...>

Dear Genners,

I am about to research in Berlin for the first time.
Any tips would be gratefully received.
My family came >from Margonin in Posen, now NW Poland.
They left in 1860 to settle in the UK.
I have made an appointment with Stamdesampt 1 but I don't
speak German. Will this be a problem?

Are there other Archives relating to Posen in Berlin?

Roger Lustig kindly replied to an earlier query, but was
not optimistic about records surviving. Has anyone been to Margonin?

Thanks in advance. Miriam Margolyes Melbourne, Australia
