I'm going to Germany to trace some of my ancestry in Prussia. I have family from Schmolln and Brussow, but cannot find any info on these two places (east of Prenzlau close to Poland border). Are they so small that they're not worth visiting? Are there any places to stay in these towns or nearby? Would Pasewalk be a better place to stay? Are there cemetries nearby also?
My maiden name is Schloss. I'm also trying to trace anything on Johanis Wilhelm Meckelburg (1880's) (also from Prussia, but have reached a dead end). Does anyone know how to get access to archives of this area?
