#Prior to 1871, Germany consisted of many countries which united in 1871. Records were kept or organized by these countries/states. Here you will search Prussia, West Prussia, East Prussia (Preussen, Westpreussen, Ostpreussen) state records.
 
#Next, if you have not done so, search the [[Germany Online Genealogy Records|'''''Germany Online Genealogy Records''''']] for a country-wide record search for Germany.
 
#Only a small percentage of German records are online. Many more have been microfilmed. Use the [https://familysearch.org/catalog-search FamilySearch Catalog] to find '''''microfilmed records''''' that can be searched at your local [https://familysearch.org/locations/ Family History Center] or the [https://familysearch.org/learn/wiki/en/Family_History_Library Family History Library] in Salt lake City, Utah.
 
#Many more '''''records are available in Germany'''''. [[Germany Websites--Reference and Training|Germany Websites--Reference and Training]] lists many online sources for determining where you might access these records in archives, churches, and other repositories in Germany.
