I'm looking for an ancestor who was born in 1878, likely in Januszkowo, Warminsko-Mazurskie while it was still German territory.
I want to find his birth record, though I can only guess his religion might have been Protestant. However, looking at the FamilySearch records for the Protestant Waplitz/Waplewo parish https://familysearch.org/search/catalog/311650?availability=Family%20History%20Library, they only goes to 1830 for baptisms. And their records for the Catholic Thurau/Turuwo parish https://familysearch.org/search/catalog/210066?availability=Family%20History%20Library only reach 1875. My final thought is to skip the churches/denominations and go directly for the civil registry from Wittmannsdorf, which FamilySearch doesn't have as far as I can see.
Where else would you suggest to look for these records? Thanks!
