Finding Your German Immigrant Ancestor’s Birthplace

Speaker: Joe Everett. Before you can cross the pond to research in German records, you have to do your homework in United States records to learn the immigrant’s specific place of origin. This is due not only to the decentralized nature of German records and the scarcity of indexes, but also to the fact that there are many common German personal and place names.  The more you know about your German family on this side of the pond, the better you will be at finding them on the other side. Learn about records, resources, and methods to help you to get over the biggest hurdle in German genealogy research. Registration.
