Researching in German Civil and Parish Records - Alexander Tolksdorf
6:30 pm
Caroline Kennedy Library, Youth Program Room, 24590 George Street, Dearborn Heights, Michigan 48127
This presentation is designed to help those new to research with German record sets. The complexity of Germany’s history and its effect on genealogical sources can be difficult obstacles for a family historian to overcome. The class will focus specifically on German civil records and parish records, with emphasis on how/where to locate the records and how to interpret the records. This ranges from using FamilySearch’s catalog to using German repositories like Archion.de to contacting local archives. Additional attention will be provided to historical geopolitics of what is today Germany, handwriting styles, as well as useful German reference materials. Lastly, the class also covers territorial regions formerly included in the German Empire (i.e. Alsace-Lorraine and eastern Prussian provinces.)
