EE. Sharp.....nothing is easy. My guess is that the document refers to the
city of Schleswig, formerly in Denmark.....now just south of the Danish
border in Schleswig/Holstein. Go to your nearest LDS genealogical library.
They have both church records and censuses available from Salt Lake City re
the city of Schleswig. I've been there......and looked at census records
in the archive at Schloss Gottorf. I'd try the census records
first......they include place of birth for all persons listed and you can
find the whole family and other information. Admittedly, you'll have to
struggle with the old German script.....with a bit of Danish twist if the
censustaker was a Dane. John
