Hello, my name is Marie Sellers and I am doing family history research in more than one area of Germany. My Surnames are: Mattfeld, Kneip, Ziegan, Gerstner, Bachmann, & Marschke.
What I am most concerned with right now is my grandfather, Friedrich J. Mattfeld, b. 4 Jun 1905 in Achim bei Bremen. His parents names are Heinrich Mattfeld and Augusta Bachmann-Mattfeld. I know he had one sister named Lisa who married a Nolte and had at least one son, named Dieter Nolte, whom I believe might live in the Berlin area.
Friedrich emigrated from Bremen to the U.S. in July 1923. His last place of residence in Germany was Worpedorf-Grasberg. He lived for a short time in Brooklyn, N.Y. with his uncle, Johann Bachmann, who was born in Oyten.
I have been unable to find any kind of birth, marriage, christening or death records online for Niedersachsen. Any clues as to where to go next to look?
