My SCHMIEG Ancestors

In Australia, my ancestry begins from Caspar / Kaspar Schmieg who came to Australia on the "Commodore Perry" in 1855. He was born in Ladenburg, Baden, Germany on 21 April 1830 to parents Johann Georg SCHMIEG (a ploughworker) born in Dossenheim and Elisabeth BECK who married in the Catholic Church, Ladenburg on 3 March 1825. Source of Ladenburg data: Ortssippenbuch for Ladenburg (4 digit code numbers such as 3222 come from this book) I have some photocopied sheets from this book about all Schmieg families that appear in it. I do NOT have the book.
