I am trying to find information on my oldest known ancestor Juri Berges who was born in Munchhausen about 1730. He emigrated to Sint Annaland, Zeeland, Netherlands where he married in 1760 in the Dutch Reformed church. The church record stated only that he was born in a Munchhausen. I am trying to find his birth record. I have found four Munchhausens in Germany and two in the Alsace area of France. I believe his name "Juri" is slavik or Norwegian. I am trying to search Munchhausen, Bradenberg and Munchhausen (Mnichow) Silesia and have yet to have any success. My father has searched in Hesse in the 1970's. I do not know if Juri Berges was Catholic or Reformed or what chuch he may have attended. His grandson was a Reformed church elder in Tholen, Zeeland. Any assistance as to where to search for civil records or which church records would be appreciated.
