This volume includes a total of 3,309 places - mostly towns, found in the Imperial Province of Alsace-Lorraine (Elsass-Lothringen – District of Lothringen I - French Department of Lorraine – Kreise (Arrondissements) Bolchen, Diedenhofen, Forbach, Metz and Saargemünd. The French names, as well as the German are included for each town. This book also includes a master index to Volumes 37 and 38, which covers all of Lorraine. This is the fifth of six volumes covering Alsace-Lorrine. Written in English by Kevan Hansen, the volume 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. This is the thirty-seventh of a series covering all of Germany. The series is still in production. In many cases, 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.
