This updated edition of “In Search of Your German Roots” is designed to help you trace your German ancestry; not only in Germany but in all the German- speaking areas of Europe, from the Baltic to the Crimea, from the Czech Republic to Belgium. Like all books by Angus Baxter, it shows you how to conduct your research by correspondence and e-mail; how to work in your own home, at your computer, using the resources of libraries and archives or the records of church and state.Thanks to the Internet, it's much easier to search for your German ancestors today than when the book was originally written. All of the major archives and many of the smaller ones, as well as church parishes, have websites containing contact information and information on their holdings. Correspondence can now often be handled more quickly and less expensively via e-mail. An ever increasing number of databases with information relevant to German ancestor-hunters—passenger lists, cemetery records, surname directories, etc.—has greatly improved opportunities for research.While these developments in no way alter the nature of the records or the research techniques described in this work, readers should be aware that the growing list of websites, online databases, and CD-ROMs devoted to German genealogy have made the task of locating your German ancestors immeasurably easier.This edition of the book includes website and e-mail addresses whenever possible, covers the newest facilities and records available to researchers, and lists the online resources that will be invaluable in your search.
