After many years of searching, I have finally discovered from the Hamburg Emigration Records that before leaving Germany the last residence of my great-grandfather Stephan Barnosky (bc 1857, parents: Andreas Barnosky and Mariana [Michalska?]) was Beestland, Pommern. I have been told that Beestland's records (church, census, etc.) may be included in Mecklinburg's or perhaps in Demmin's records.
I am very unfamiliar with these records and so would appreciate any help or to be pointed in the right direction. Unfortunately, my access to records is limited to whatever I can order through the LDS library, which aren't many, unless I am not looking into the right regions.
As I said, I'm new to researching this area, so I look forward to hearing from those more experienced with the records of this region., or perhaps from someone who has access the records containing Beestland information.
