Put in Cottbus and you'll get a list.of 7 record groups. One for Cuttbus the village; and six more for parishes withing Kreis Cottbus. The brute force approach [which might be your best choice], it to go to each one and get the film that should have Friedrich's baptismal record if he was born there. There's no guarantee that he'll be in any of the 7.
If he's not there, eitehr your Cottbus was wrong or his records didn't survive.
Sometimes you can get lucky by going here: http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi and searching on the family names and/or locations hopint that someone has already done some research on your family. Though I tried a few searches and it doesn't look like it's going to work.
Just try to Google various combinations of the surnames. Vater Cottbus or Piesker Cottbus, etc. It's certainly possible that the same family names are in the same villags they were 150 years ago. That might give you some hints.
Hello, I can help there. No, you don't need to start over. The program won't let you add sisters and brothers (otherwise known as "siblings") unless you have added mother and father of the one you want to attach sisters and brothers to. Even if you have no first name, the father's name is known. The mother would have no first and maiden name but would have the married name. Now you can attach sons and daughters. Have a go.
Is there a way that i can create a folder or are they put on by the heritage people themself. i ask this becasue i am looking for a folder which is called parma italy but i cant find it so i was just wondering if i can create one myself.
I'm new to My Heritage and just saw your post. My mother is a Middleton from New Orleans. Her grandfather was Ruben Middleton, a painter there born about 1855 in England and married in New Orleans in 1880. I have no idea who his parents were. Is it possible he was related to any of your Middletons?
