I sent this response through the Mailing-list, to let all the members know
that I am willing to help whenever I can. I have done a free of charge
Look-up for You in March 99. I have sent the transcription of the
birth-record of Your Ancestor in Oldenburg to You, and also a little
Definition of it. I have got no response of You - No Thank You.
It is very OK with Me, if someone can not effort My professional
Genealogical Research, but I think a little Thank You can be resent in
My Source for the description of villages in Schleswig-Holstein is:
1. Topographie der Herzogtuemer Holstein und Lauenburg: first printed in
2. Topographie des Fuerstentums Luebeck: first printed in 1855
3. Topographie des Herzogtums Schleswig: first printed in 1854
I owe no Topograhie of the area of Dithmarschen.
OLDENBURG in Holstein:
Old name is Aldenborch; before that it was called Starigrad. First listed
in the year 940, but it is older than that. In 1370 are 2/3 of the town
burned down, and again in 1524. On the 27.Jun.1700 were 1/6 of the town
lost by a fire, and on the 15.Aug.1773 are burned down 400 houses, only 98
houses are not. 13 people lost theyr life in that fire of the 15.Aug.1773.
Inhabitents of Oldenburg: in 1845 = 2447 people; in 1855 = 2735 people.
This is only a short decription of Oldenburg; in My book are listed 8
pages as a definition of the area and history of Oldenburg.
There is a Citizen-book (register of new-Citizens) of Oldenburg of the
time 1550 until 1753, printed as a special edition for the members of the
Gesellschaft fuer Familienforschung und Wappenkunde e.V. Kiel in 1978
(Sonderheft 2, 120 pages)
