I am researching my ancestors from the Segeberg area. My earliest known ancestor is Hans Harder b. 1732 - d. 1809 probably from Högersdorf or Wittenborn. He was married to Catharina Bostedt 1728-1802 (Parents Claus and Antje Bostedt of Neurengörs) . They had three children Anna, Johann and Hinrich b 1767. I am trying to find relatives of Hans Harder. Siblings, parents, or other relatives. I am especially interested in a Jürgen Harder of Neindorf who was a godparent at the baptism of Hinrich Harder in 1767. I believe he might have been either the father or a brother of Hans Harder.
Additional surnames in the family are Schweim, Hamman (Hagemann), Studt(Stuth), Lutje, L(a)ofeldt (Blafeldt) or Lockfeldt?
These families lived primarily in present day Amt Leezen and Amt Trave-land of Kreis Segeberg in the villages Högersdorf, Leezen, Moetzen, Krems, Wittenborn, Altengoers, Nuerengoers outside of Segeberg.
I would be interested in sharing information with anyone who an interest in these families.
