Genealogical Guide to Tracing Ancestors in Germany
Margaret Krug Palen
With the unification of Germany, it is now possible to trace German ancestry with a greater degree of accuracy than could be accomplished in earlier years. Before you endeavor to research by mail or travel to Germany, you will have to do some essential research in the United States. That accomplished, you can begin research in Germany. This book will let you know exactly what kinds of records are available there, where to find them, how to get access to them, and how to decipher them. Helpful features of this book include lists of German terminology and useful phrases with English translations, along with illustrations of Gothic script and many of the types of forms and records you may encounter.
