What's about his religion?

there are 2 places called Hasbergen in Northern Germany, one is situated
next to Osnabrück in Niedersachsen (in earlier times Hannover), the
other one is today part of Delmenhorst Niedersachsen (in former times
Hasbergen near Osnabrück, as far as it was protestant, belonged to
Osnabrück-St. Katharinen parish.
All the records of St. Katharinen have not been filmed by LDS.
The Evangelical church of Hannover made it's own films.

No. Phillip is Phillip in Germany. Theobald is Theobald (at least in
England).A very old name from the middle ages.

Diederich also can be Dir(c)k maybe Derrick in English. Peter = Peter.
