Planning a Research Trip to Germany III

DearREADERS,
In "Planning a Research Trip to Germany I" I promised researcher Patc121@aol.com some more advice on preparing for her ancestral quest in Germany this fall.  Part II listed my top five thoughts for proceeding with her preparation.  The purpose of this article is to list a good selection of Germany related genealogy web sites.

German Genealogy Cross-Index - from FEEFHS.  I always think of John Movious' work with the Federation of Eastern European Family History Societies located at: http://feefhs.org/indexger.html 

Germany GenWeb
http://www.rootsweb.com/~wggerman/ 

Matt & April Helm's ToolBox They currently have 76,020 genealogy web sites listed, so search through and see what they've got for Germany!
http://www.genealogy.com/links/index.html 
 


Linda Peterson did a series of articles about Genealogical Research in Germany including:

CYNDI's LIST  includes 48,650 links, categorized & cross-referenced, in over 120 categories with 12,650+ uncategorized new links in the works.
For her GERMANY specific sites indexed at:
http://www.cyndislist.com/germany.htm 

Of particular interest with your "Black Forest" (Schwartzwald) research is this site I found by by visiting Cyndi's List -  Black Forest Genealogy
http://www.websters.net/blackforest/ 
Here you'll find a great map!



"The Black Forest is named for the beautiful mountain landscape with its dense population of pine trees. It is a region of incomparably unspoiled nature with its forests, mountains and meadows." http://www.websters.net/blackforest/ 

 

Of course, you'll visit by John Fuller & Chris Gaunt's phenomenal Genealogy Resources on the Internet located at:
http://members.aol.com/johnf14246/internet.html 

For Germany-specific sites you'll find:

Using "Genealogy Resources on the Internet" I found the following useful sites:

READERS, this listing is but a drop in the bucket when it comes to German genealogical web sites, mail lists, maps and "how-to" sites.  I think these will keep PatC121@aol.com busy for a while!
