My great grandfather migrated from Lübeck to Guatemala in the late 1880's. I am trying to find certified records of his family left behind in Germany.

I tried writing to the city hall but I haven't been able to get any response. Any idea where else I can look for?

  • Did you order specific records from the city’s archive or wrote a more general inquiry? Do you have any birth dates and marriage dates for those who migrated? Ordering the birth and marriage records would be a first step. – lejonet Aug 11 '20 at 17:03

There is a local genealogy association: Verein für Familienforschung Lübeck They provide an excellent overview regarding genealogical resources related to Lübeck and offer help to researchers (please read their FAQ first).
