How do I find Jewish birth records in the 1800s for Calau, which is a small town in the Oberspreewald-Lausitz district, in southern Brandenburg, Germany.
 
Thank you

This web site (in German) is dedicated to the history of the Jews of the Niederlausitz region, which contains Calau:
http://www.luckauer-juden.de
You will find several pages about the history of the Jews in the region.
A list of names is found here:
A-L: http://www.luckauer-juden.de/nvz1.html
M-Z: http://www.luckauer-juden.de/nvz2.html

The birth records up to September 1874 will be at the Brandesburgisches Landeshauptarchiv. The archives are closed due to COVID-19 and will not be opened before January. They can only be used in person, and the documents will have to be ordered in advance.
