I am helping a woman to find information about her grandmother and her Uncle. The Swedish woman Ida Maria Johansdotter b. 12 Oct 1862 gave birth to a son, Wilhelm Johansson. In the Swedish churchbooks it says that he was born in Kiel 27 Jan 1894.

Is there any possibility to find out more/confirm the birt of little Wilhelm.

Greetings from Sweden

Good morning.

You should switch the site language to English - upper right corner - switch from DE to EN

and then follow the steps as i.e. described here

While using Archion‘s search functionality you‘ll see that so far only some Militärkirchenbücher / military church registers for Kiel are online available.

Other than that given a year of birth 1894 (please read the initial instructions about church registers to expect at Archion in general!!) you may consider to contact the Standesamt/civil registration office OR the Stadtarchiv/city archive of Kiel in order to get a copy of his birth certificate.
Charges apply for their services!

Good luck.
