There's a letter written by my great-great grandfather,
he talks about making a trip in 1865 to the Prussian consul
in Akkerman on the Black Sea, to get a "Schutzschein" confirming
that he was still a Prussian citizen. The whole letter is in the
Sept 2013 issue of the SGGEE journal.
Akkerman is now Bilhorod-Dnistrovsky. I don't know if there
are any consular records surviving - and if there are, whether
they are in Germany, or in Ukraine.
