I am from the US, but will be in Berlin for a business trip the first part of September. I would like to take two days (9/11 and 9/12) to investigate historical records to find more information on my ancestors.
My great-great-great grandfather is a Martin Papenfuss, born in Peest, Schlawe, in 1808. I have a little bit of information on his wife (Dorothea Sophie Möws) and her parents, but no further information on Martin or Dorothea and their ancestors. The purpose of my trip would be to find whatever information I can.
However, I would like to make the most efficient use of my time, since I only have two days. I am wondering what sorts of records would likely be most useful, and where I can best find those records. Slupsk? Koszalin? Piescz?
Any advice this group can provide would be most greatly appreciated. In addition, I am happy to share whatever information I have now, as well as what I find during my visit.
Thanks in advance,
