I Can't Find Who I'm Looking For, What Now?

  • Consult the Germany Record Finder to find other records
  • When looking for an individual with a common name, look at all the search results before deciding which is the correct person. Use other information, such as place of birth, age, occupation, or names of parents, to help with this decision. If listed, a personal title may be a clue to property ownership or occupation, either of which might be noted in other records
  • Try variations of given names and surnames. An individual might appear under a different name in a record for a variety of reasons:
    • They might have been listed under a middle name, nickname, or abbreviation of their given name
    • Spelling was not standardized for much of the period of this collection, so names were often spelled as recorders heard them. Pay attention to how the name should have been pronounced and try spelling variations that could have that pronunciation
    • Some women returned to their maiden names after the death of their husbands
  • Vary the search terms. For example, expand the date range or search by either the given name or surname to return a broader list search results
  • Search the records of nearby locations. While a person in this period rarely ever lived more than about 20 miles from their place of birth, moves within this range were common
