Kingdom of Hannover BMDs #germany #general


Richard Oppenheimer
 

I would appreciate suggestions from the experts in this group on how to go about finding birth records from the Kingdom of Hanover dating to 1829. I do not have the name of the town where the birth took place. Are records from that era even available? I suspect that the person in question was born closer to Bremerhaven.

You may have a problem with records for Hannover.  Not many years ago I was searching for records for 17th Century in Emden and these were not kept centrally then but the Archivist in Hannover organised a meeting in Emden for me with an Archivist the following day.  Some of the individual Archives were not related to particular towns but to what had obviously been land holdings of a monastery or nobleman or similar.  I would suggest that you try Hannover first for possible information of any specific other archive.  As an example, Emden archive published several books (in German) on subjects such as Jewish family names going back.  It may now be possible to search such information in a single source.  If so, please let me know privately.

The Momons microfilmed the synagogue BMD registry books dating back to when civil registration began in the Kingdom of Hanover. Instructions on how to use the LDS catalog can be obtained at any Family History Center and on their genealogy website.

My family all came from Hannover, and I was given the details by other family members.  So they do exist.

What name(s) are you researching?

Cheers!

Hello Richard and list readers,

without knowing the name it is a bit difficult to provide support.
My first try would be researching in the very helpful database:

"Jews in the German Reich" via
https://ofb.genealogy.net/juden_nw/index.php?lang=en
Here you may find hints for the places in which certain family names occurred (after name-adoption).

Depending on the result I would offer to do some research on possible sources/literature.

In Bremen the Genealogical Society 'Die Maus' has also compiled diverse information of records on families/people in and around Bremen. Unfortunately, they don't have an English version of their website:
https://die-maus-bremen.info/index.php?id=1&L=1%27A%3D0

Most of the archival records are not online but will have to be 'dug up' in the State Archives in charge.

Kind regards from Germany
