==Finding Civil Registration Records ==
===1. Digital Copies of Civil Registration From FamilySearch===
Try to find records in the collection of the FamilySearch Library. Many microfilms have been digitized for online viewing. Gradually, everything will be digitized, so check back occasionally. Some have viewing restrictions, and can only be viewed at the [https://familysearch.org/locations/ '''Family History Centers'''] near you, and/or by members of supporting organizations. To find records:
:::a. Click on the [https://www.familysearch.org/search/catalog/results?count=20&placeId=29395&query=%2Bplace%3A%22Germany%2C%20Baden%22 '''records of Germany, Baden'''].
:::f. Some combination of these icons will appear at the far right of the microfilm listed for the record. [[File:FHL icons.png|75px]]. The magnifying glass indicates that the microfilm is indexed. Clicking on the magnifying glass will take you to the index. Clicking on the camera will take you to an online digital copy of the microfilm.
2. Writing for Civil Registration Certificates===
Civil registration records for Germany can be obtained by writing for recent records to the local civil registry (Standesamt) or for earlier records to the local archives. They may have been lost at one location of the other, so you might end up checking both. The first office you contact might choose to forward your request to the other location if necessary.<br>
