I am looking for my Grandfather's family. His father's name was Rudolf Kamp
born on 22 Mar 1874 in Steinbild, Hannover, Germany. He died on 6 Apr 1916
There are civil registers since 1875 for everybody. So you might ask them also
beside the churches to send you over documents of birth, death or marriage. Each
documents will be about 8,- or 9,- Euro - don't know exactly - but there is no
additional research fee giving the exact dates, which you own, perhaps some fee
for stamps on the letter. Here the adresses for Steinbild:
Catholic Church: Pfarramt St.Georg,26892 Kluse, 04963 585
Civil Administration: Gemeindeverwaltungen, 26892 Kluse
He married Margarethe Griese born on 18 Mar 1875 in Melstrup, Germany. She
died on 2 Aug 1960 in Steinbild.
The same for Melstrup:
Catholic Church: (probably)Katholisches Pfarramt, Kirchstr.10, 49762
Civil Administration: Gemeindeverwaltungen, Schulstr.6,49762
Fresenburg, Tel. 05933 530
My grandfather Heinrich Kamp who was born on the 26 Feb 1906 and came to the
United States when he was 17 years old in Nov of 1923. His older sister
Gesine Kamp came to United States on 1 Jun 1922.
I would love to find the rest of the family. Came anyone tell me were
Melstrup is in Germany?

but is suspended by magnetic power.
