Notes for Johann Heinrich Borgstadt:
Per Carsten Pick:"Only a small annotation to the older (German) generations in this family tree which is only interesting, if you want to take the information about the places very correctly:The name of the parish, where the Borgstadt family obviously comes from, is Werther.It is about 10 kilometres north-west the town of Bielefeld.Indeed it belongs to the province of Westphalia.But in a way it is not correct to call it "Germany" because Germany was no political unit before 1871.It consisted of a lot of sovereign states the biggest of which was Prussia, and Westphalia was a porvince of Prussia.In 1871, after a common "German" war against France, about 20 German princes united and declared the Prussian king (Wilhelm I.) to be the German "Kaiser" (emperor).Before, Germany is no state, but only a cultural and geographical factor. (So your forefather Johann Heinrich Borgstadt cannot have served German military before 1856, because there was none, surely he served Prussian military.)"
