Helmut is a pro, but while I'll offer my own simpler solution, He or others will say what to do with (or think about) this less complex frame of reference, I hope.
In my tree I have one family whose members are residents of villages inside Karlsruhe: Thus, in the Add Fact part of the profile for them on ancestry.com, I wrote: In "Unteröwisheim, Bruchsal, Baden, Prussia" in the original record, the village comes first, the town of record is Bruchsal, that era's (1830s) name for the area was Baden, and the state was Preufsen (fs: in old script--looks like ss).
Because the records ancestry.com gives, the village is not shown nor recognized as a search element. I received the villages names from an archivist at Stadt Karlsruhe in one of many emails as she dug deeper. I am held back from this because using a wire transfer to pay them costs far more than acquiring the record itself. : > ( .
Thus, I sense that if I remove the villages from the profiles' search request, I'm much more likely to get results from the website for each inividual. IS that Correct? I don't know.
DOES anyone know a cheaper yet safe way to send money (from the US or anywhere) to acquire German records??? I could then search Frankfurt records and Baden records to find out more, if those archivists are as careful as the Frankfurt archivist was.
