German immigrant families to US: need research

+10 votes

Hi, Cousins,

I came across a marriage in a collateral line. The father of the spouse was supposedly born in Buettel, Schleswig-Holstein, and the mother also has German ancestry. 

If you are interested, see the link below for the starting point for working backwards. I've orphaned the profile of Hilda Tecklenburg McCord.

Büttel is a very small independent municipality in the Steinburg county (Kreis Steinburg) in Schleswig-Holstein.

The municipality has together with the hamlets/ dwelling places Dorf, Altenkoog, Tütermoor, Nordbüttel and Kuhlen less then 70 citizens.

The responsible parish is St. Margarethen, church district Rantzau-Münsterdorf, church bishopric Schleswig-Holstein, Evangelical Lutheran Church in Northern Germany (Nordkirche).

At the moment there are no parish records avaible on archion for that parish.
