  • Funeral home records
  • Guild registers
  • Jewish records
  • Land records
  • Probate records
  • School records
  • Tax records
  • Voting registers

This collection is being published as images become available. Most of the records are handwritten in narrative style and, in later years, in formatted forms. For help reading these records, see Germany Handwriting. City records were created to help civil authorities and for the benefits of its citizens. Most of the records listed in this collection are reliable to a point, depending on the knowledge of the person giving the information and the person that received it. The civil registration (after 1876) and church records are the most often used records for genealogical research. However, if those are not available, the population registers (census) and emigration records are also reliable and great records to search for data that will help find other family members and other records.

Image Visibility[edit | edit source]

Whenever possible FamilySearch makes images and indexes available for all users. However, rights to view these data are limited by contract and subject to change. Because of this there may be limitations on where and how images and indexes are available or who can see them. Please be aware some collections consist only of partial information indexed from the records and do not contain any images.

For additional information about image restrictions see Restrictions for Viewing Images in FamilySearch Historical Record Collections.

Reading These Records[edit | edit source]

How Do I Search This Collection?[edit | edit source]

It is helpful to know:

  • Your ancestor's name
  • Residence

  • Names of family members

View the Images[edit | edit source]

View images in this collection by visiting the Browse Page

  1. Select Record type
  2. Select Record type, Year range, and Volume to view the images

How Do I Analyze the Results?[edit | edit source]

Compare each result from your search with what you know to determine if there is a match. This may require viewing multiple records or images. Keep track of your research in a research log.

What do I do next?[edit | edit source]

Whenever possible, view the original records to verify the information and to find additional information that might not be reported. These pieces of information can lead you to additional records and family members.

I Found the Person I Was Looking For, What Now?[edit | edit source]

  • Add any new information to your records
  • Use the age in the citizen to find an approximate birth year to begin your search in church or civil records
  • Continue to search the records to identify children, siblings, parents, and other relatives who may have moved, been recruited or lived nearby. This can help you identify other generations of your family. Repeat this process for each new generation you identify. Compile the entries for every person who has the same surname; this is especially helpful in rural areas or if the surname is unusual. This compiled list can help you identify possible relations that can be further verified by researching vital records in the country
  • When you have located your ancestor’s record, carefully evaluate each piece of information given. Save a copy of the image or transcribe the information. These pieces of information may give you new biographical details such as a title, an occupation, or land ownership. Add this new information to your records of each family. You should also look for leads to other records about your ancestors
  • Church Records often were kept years before government records were required and are a good source for finding ancestors before 1900

I Can't Find the Person I'm Looking For, What Now?[edit | edit source]

  • Consult the Germany Record Finder to find other records
  • Switch to a different record collection. Depending on the time period, either German Civil Registration records or German Church records may be more useful
  • While searching, it is helpful to know such information as the ancestor’s given name and surname, some identifying information such as residence and age, and family relationships. Remember that there may be more than one person in the records with the same name as an ancestor and that the ancestor may have used nicknames or different names at different times
  • Keep in mind that there may be more than one person in the records with the same name
  • Standard spelling of names typically did not exist during the periods our ancestors lived in. Try variations of your ancestor’s name while searching the index or browsing through images. Pay special attention to how the name should have been pronounced and try variations on the pronunciation
  • Search the indexes and records of local genealogical societies
