View Full Version : Tracing ancestry in Germany

15-10-2009, 10:26 AM
Hi I have just registered on this website in the hope that someone out there will be able to help with finding details of the German side of my wife's family. I know some details like namres and approximate dates, but I do not know the places in Germany. Where do I start please?

Welcome to the B-G forums.

I've moved your thread across to the Europe Genenalogy forum (http://www.british-genealogy.com/forums/showthread.php?t=52103), which seems better for its topic. Use the search engine to look for other postings relating to Germany, there may be some information on how to research family history from there.

To a large extent, where you begin depends on when the family migrated from Germany.

As there is more detail on another thread, posted after Geoffers' comments here were made, I am closing this thread and would direct those who may be able to assist to the new thread which can be found here. (http://www.british-genealogy.com/forums/showthread.php?t=52150)
