My ancestor, Friedrich Hauptreif, was born 29 January, 1841 in Udenhausen, Hessen, Germany near Hofgeismar. He was of the protestant faith. A family member has obtained records from the dekanat Hofgeismar that traces the family back four more generations. How do I obtain copies of these records since he does not have the actual sources?
Also, I would like to have more research done on the siblings and others in this family. How do I find someone to check the records for me?
