Re: Claus Hinrich Schütt in Hamburg


Thanks for looking Rick


Unfortunately, this marriage is far too early as this Anna Timms would have been in her 80s by 1865 when Emma Schütt was born.


I would also point out that the “Schleswig-Holstein” records on Ancestry aren’t actually from 19th century Schleswig-Holstein.  The parishes of Curau, Renseld etc that Ancestry lists under Schleswig-Holstein, were actually in in the exclave of the Duchy of Oldenburg, and it is these that the LDS had access to and microfilmed in the 1950s or 1960s, which Ancestry has in turn acquired.  Parishes such as Zarpen (my major interest) which was actually in the Duchy of Holstein in the 19th century aren’t available on either Family Search or Ancestry.

G’day everyone


Unfortunately, I haven’t access to Ancestry thanks to my local LDS library closing in March because of the Wuhan virus. 


However, I’ve going through some German BDM certificates that I had stored on a thumb-drive.  One of them is a 1941 Hamburg death certificate for Emma Margaretha Maria geb. Schütt who was born in 1865 in Hinschenfelde (Hamburg-Wandsbek).  The death certificate lists her parents as being


Claus Hinrich Schütt, and

Anna Catharina geb. Timm


“beide zuletzt wohnhaft in Hamburg”.


If Emma was born in 1865, then her father Claus is likely to have been born between 1820 and 1845, and I have a Claus Hinrich Schmidt born ca. 1827 according to the 1835 and 1840 census of the parish of Zarpen near Lübeck.


Could someone who has access to Ancestry please have a look and see if there is a death recorded post-1865 in Hamburg for Claus Hinrich Schütt?  I’m particularly interested in his age and parentage.
