19 of 19 people found the following review helpful By Mark Howells on May 21, 2005
Format: Paperback
This book is a great resource about German genealogy for American descendants. It's 600+ pages begin with information to understand German history, the immigrant experience and the records of genealogical importance that were generated as a result. The next set of chapters give an overview on church & civil records and the repositories which hold them in Germany. The advice given on the best way to approach these repositories is invaluable. German references and finding aids are reviewed and then American record types are described with an emphasis on researching Germans in the United States. The German educational system, language, fraternal organizations, customs, naming practices, military resources and religions are dealt with in detailed chapters. The diverse geographic areas of interest beyond Germany itself are covered as well such as the origins of the Germans from Russia, German settlement of Pennsylvania and the former areas of Germany in the east. This is a great reference for Americans seeking their German ancestors.

I have been using this book for about two months and I have found the book to be worth every penny. It provides a wealth of information about German records, and includes an invaluable guide to reading German script.
