First steps are to maker sure you have signed the Honor Code and are a fully fledged Profile Manager. 

Next step is create the profile of your parents, grandparents, great grandparents, great great grandparents and so forth as far back in time as you can 

The next step then is see that each profile has sources such as marriage, birth, death, as can be located by you 

I see that Batavia, Genesee County is in New York. There is a Hans Tiede (1850-1934) - Find A Grave Memorial but it does not cite his parents. 

His profile is on WT Hans Tiede (1850-1934) | WikiTree FREE Family Tree His parents are not listed on that profile

It is possible his parents did not emigrate with him but remained in Germany.  Someone who knows how to research in Germany may be able to assist you

Hans and his wife and children are on the "United States Census, 1900," database with images, FamilySearch(https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MSPZ-6YB : accessed 21 September 2020), Hans Tiede, Middleburg Township, Wyoming, New York, United States; citing enumeration district (ED) 127, sheet 5B, family 120, NARA microfilm publication T623 (Washington, D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, 1972.); FHL microfilm 1,241,179.

Census does indicate he emmigrated in 1886 and of the six children born to him it appears that only the sixth was born after 1886. 

The familysearch tree Hans Tiede (1850–1934) | Person | Family Tree | FamilySearch does cite his parents as Caspar tiede and Margaretha Detlesse. They would need to be verified as his parents by some document that lists them by name

I could not find a source for his birth or his parents.  Various Ancestry trees give his place of birth as Halstern, Herford, Westfalen not Halstein, but of course I couldn't find any tree with a source.

I did find a passenger list that gives his place of residence before he immigrated in 1886 as Appen, Holstein.  Some sources also give his oldest son's place of birth as Pinneberg, which is very close by.  Possibly he was married there, and if a record could be found it might have his parents names.

I added the source for the passenger list to his profile.  https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Tiede-71
