unknown coordinate system

We have some shapefiles of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern in Germany and a pdf-map which have no coordinate system. Only the WMS-map got the Geographic Coordinates: GCS_WGS_1984. We use the georeferencing-button to join both maps. Then we dedicated different coordinate systems to our shapefiles which didn't work. If we try to project our shapefiles in arc map 10.0 we get the message: Warning, inconsistent extent!

We hope you can help us,
best regards from Germany
