German Roots - Busch, Hanover, Germany

+8 votes

I have been researching my father's tree, Ralph P. Busch, but comes to a deadend for my 2nd great grandfather. How can I trace back to the German roots overseas?

Henry W. Busch:

Birth 21 Mar 1824 in Hanover, Germany

Death 17 Sep 1857 in Charleston County, South Carolina


Lizzie Busch: 

Birth 1822 in Hanover, Hannover, Lower Saxony, Germany

Death 02 May 1887 in Charleston County, South Carolina

Try searching for your ancestors at The LDS Mormons have filmed and indexed a lot of overseas records, and you might br able to locate some of your family that way. Works for me!

Remember to start with known ancestors and work backwards, proving each step with credible sources as you go. :)

Pamela, did you find this record at

It has 21 Mar 1824 as baptism date, not birth date, but looks pretty promising otherwise.
