I've barely begun reading this book and already have found so much practical information to use right now, without even leaving the house. The word lists are great and the info on the problems to be aware of are what I've been able to use right off the bat. The tips will come in handy at the library and research center. The contact and form letters will be useful when I have enough info to take that step. A definite "must have" for researchers with German ancestors.

This book has been a "life saver" in my battle with old German records. Without this book I would still be wondering about some of our ancestors.

I have been at a total loss when looking for information on my great grandparents who were from Germany. They immigrated in the 1840s and 1850s, and old records are hard to find.This book has some very helpful suggestions.

This is the best guide to doing Germanic research, ever. It's even better than the books it recommends. It even tells you that success is not a given.

I had hit a brick wall researching my Germanic/Prussian line. This book pointed me in new directions and though I haven't hit pay dirt yet, I am optimistic that I will have some success soon. It has renewed my interest in pursuing my elusive Prussian ancestors and, if nothing else, enlightened me in German/Prussian history and social life. Besides being educational, it's a good read.
