German Resources

This page will be updated as new resources come to my attention.

  • Trace Your German Roots Online:  A Complete Guide to German Genealogy Websites.  James M. Beidler

FamilySearch Wikis

Researching Immigrants

Maps and Gazetteers (after you know the hometown of your German ancestor)

German Language Helps
  • SK Translations:  German-English Translation Services.  There are many posts on this blog that will help those who are trying translate documents themselves.
  • The Bohemian Genealogist.  At this blog you can find a list of German words, including professions, with translations into English.  Two other posts feature multiple images of handwriting of common German names, both male and female, especially helpful because they offer the opportunity to compare the same word with different handwriting. 
  • German English Genealogical Dictionary by Ernest Thode
