Jurisdictions in Brandenburg[edit | edit source]

Villages and families from Brandenburg historically have experienced many jurisdictional changes. In searching for a place in Brandenburg the researcher may have to consider localities outside of Brandenburg, since affiliation to county, church, administration etc. was placed with Pomerania, Saxony, Silesia, Bohemia-Czech territories, Poland, Sachsen-Anhalt or Mecklenburg. If archival materials cannot be located, these references should be kept in mind.
