German Residential Records For Genealogists: Tracing Your Ancestor From Place To Place In Germany
Roger P. Minert
German residential records are found in archives all over Germany, and yes - many have been microfilmed and are available through the Family History Library. This book, German state by German state, details the history of these records. Tremendous numbers of these records were made, in that residential registration is a fact of life in Germany, an idea that's foreign to American researchers. The volume not only details the laws for each historic area of the Germany Empire, but includes examples, and state-by-state information on accessing these documents.
