This volume, listing 4,465 places, was principally written to help family historians resolve where their family may have gone to church and left vital records behind that may be seen today (many available on Family History Library microfilm). This is the seventeenth of a series covering all of Germany. The production of the series is still in process. Note that Bavaria is covered in its entirety in nine volumes, plus an index that also covers the Pfalz, found in Rhineland III Volume 13 (Map Guides 13 through 23). Even the smallest places are listed in this series – some with as little population as one person! These places are as of about 1870. If the place existed prior to that date, it will most likely be listed. If the place was named after that date, the chances drop.
