Lambertus Kleine Hindrik Deters 1770 Alte Picardie
I'm looking for any information to help me complete my family tree.I know that my line is descendant from Jan Hindrik Deters who was raised in Hannover Germany and was an original settler of Fillmore Township in Allegan County Michigan.
Records are spotty at best on anything before the immigration to America, but perhaps I'm looking in the wrong places.SO far I have my line traced back to a Lambert Deters born in 1580 but this info is unsourced and therefore not entirely reliable.The last of my "reliable" information ends with "Lambertus Kleine Hindrik Deters" born in Alte Picardie on 15 December 1770.
I'm on Ancestry.com and the majority of my info on the German Deters after Lambertus K. H. Deters comes from there with the leaf hints.
Any help with info, or best places to look would be greatly appreciated.
