Hi again Alejandro. I am surprised that no one can tell you where Reidesel was. It is pinpointed in the German Origins section of the AHSGR web-site. Click on Find Your Ancestors, then on German Origins, then on Ri. It is all there. Cheers, Dick Kraus

Well, this last ones are now really complete answers!, thanks...I have the same
problem in knowing wich areas in 1760's we were talking about, and as I can
see it's a common problem to determinate those areas.
Thanks both of you for your excellent answers, and yes, I search in many places
at the same time that's why I asked about Niedersachsen.
I got a bible, where in one page says that "both greatgrandparents of our
father came from Germany, Niedersachsen" (a brother of my grandparent wrote
that a long time ago, taking notes from his father).
Maybe the exact place have lost, but I do believe in some point it could be
true (of course, I'm not being pretty much objectiv because I'm talking
of my own roots).
Anyways, by now I'm trayng to see if my ancestor Kaspar Müller who came to
Argentina in 1877 is related to a Dönhof family, descendants of an Andreas
Müller, also this Müller family came to Dönhof from "Riedesel" and
no one so far can tell me where in Germany is "Riedesel".
So, I understand that talking about any European state in 1700's is a
little bit difficult, because many little towns where taken by neighbour and
bigger town or cities, also many places changed their names more than once on
these latest 250 years.
Thanks for your reply, it will help to have that in mind for my research.
