Help with birth/miliary record - Schindler
Wondering if somebody with experience in searching records for Germany can point me in the right direction; my great-great grandfather was born in Hesse Cassel 19 mar 1926 and according to his obituary as a young child was sent to school in France and at the age of 20 (abt 1846) returned to Germany to serve in the German army. He immigrated to the US (1852/1853). I would like to try to locate his birth record and military records if possible. I do not know who his parents are, I have searched on familysearch.org and ancestry and have not found either. Any help would be appreciated, Danke!
