Dear Mr. Damm,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
Death certificates often include the place of birth, therefore we suggest that you search the Michigan Deaths and Burials, 1800-1995 FamilySearch index, the Ohio, County Death Records, 1840-2001 FamilySearch index and/or request a death record search from the appropriate County Court office in Ohio and the State of Michigan Vital Records Office . In addition, the FamilySearch Research wiki for Ohio Vital Records and Michigan Vital Records may be helpful.
We suggest that you review the NARA’s Immigration Records website as well as the FamilySearch Research wiki for Michigan Emigration and Immigration Genealogy. We also suggest contacting the Michigan History Center Archives.
Once you locate the birthplace information, we suggest that you consult the FamilySearch Research wiki on Germany Genealogy for information on locating the original birth record.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
Thank you for your kind response. I will follow up the tips. However, my goal is to locate original documents in the German language.
Dear Mr. Damm,
Thank you for posting your follow-up request on History Hub!
After you have determined the town or village where Michael Angerer lived in Germany, we suggest that you check to see what birth records are available online and in the FamilySearch catalog using a "place search" for the specific location. Keep in mind that even when the town is known, that town might be part of a large regional parish headquartered in a nearby town. So the parish where their baptism, marriage, and burial records were kept may be found in catalogs and archives under a different name than the town of their actual residence. We suggest that you refer to the FamilySearch Research wiki on Germany Genealogy for more information.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
