German Jewish Community: Grötzingen, Alb-Donau-Kreis, Baden-Württemberg, Germany or Grötzingen, Durlach, Baden, Württemburg #germany


I have a question that I hope that someone can help me with. My 4th g grandfather was born in Grötzingen, Baden, Württemburg, Germany. Now, I've seen records in Canada, where he "immigrated" (was sent as a soldier), lived and died. Those sources say that he was born in the "Durlach" Province. Then,  on another site, I saw that he was born in that "Alb-Donau-Keis" Province or region. I can't verify that source as it is on a site that I don't have access to. Does anyone know the difference between the two regions? Are they the same? I've been researching all day and can't find enough information on either to make a determination. I also can't seem to verify which area that my ancestor was actually born in. Is there a good site to verify this information on? His surname changed from Germany to Canada and then again from him to his children and so forth. Additionally, I don't know who his parents are! My ancestor is Michel Süder, just in case you were curious...☺️

Any info on this town would be very helpful.
