When doing research in an archive, one has to be familiar with the so called Findbuch. This is a collection of archival records listed by an archivist. All records are organized by call numbers (Signaturen), are briefly described and published by the archive. The Findbuch can be found in the archive itself in book form or online in connection with the archival catalog (Bestände).
For instance, the Findbuch of the city of Paderborn is online
A click on Bestände and then online Findbücher gives the choice to get an alphabetical list of all Findbücher or to retrieve them by date. www.familysearch.org has an alphabetical index of topics for the city of Paderborn. It can be retrieved through International film number 1200698 items 7-9. This film can be obtained for perusal through the Family History Center network.
