I challenge the one lone user who said this review was not helpful to self-identify, stipulate & write a superior review. Email it to karlmsala@msn.com & call 1-888-456-7252 to render your apology, chastisement &/or explanation.

I've been a German Genealogist since 1979; have 133+ endearing endorsements on Linkedin.com--& that's just since 2008--& that's just from folks who happen to be on Linkedin.com! I have hundreds more from folks who are not on Linkedin or not even online at all!

I'm neither owner nor author, but I sure am a 3-decade user of this book! Buy & ship me one for a reward twice the value of the book!

SINCE 1979, @ the Family History Library in Salt Lake City & @ Family History Centers in the USA & Germany, using this book & other resources, I've both voluntarily & professionally helped hundreds of patrons & clients solve hundreds of mid-Europe & German cases!

TO CRACK/SOLVE cases, I use not just one, but TWO gazetteers of the entire pre-WW1 German Empire: Meyers Orts= und Verkehrs=lexikon des Deutschen Reichs is a bit superior to the similar Neumanns Orts- und Verkehrs-Lexikon des Deutschen Reichs. Meyers has more place-name entries. Therefore, Meyers is THE source used by the cataloging department of the Family History Library (FHL) of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Salt Lake City, UTah. Don't be dissuaded in any way by the name of the church or whether you are not of the same faith. If you are seeking German parochial records (a/k/a parish registers) in the FHL Catalog, you will need to follow their excellent lead.

NEUMANNS gazetteer, however, has some highly interesting historical notes not found in Meyers. Meyers has some statistical data not found in Neumanns.
