FAQ - German Ancestry

I'm interested in tracing my German ancestors. Can you help?

The How To Germany website has an excellent article on genealogy. You'll find some good ideas about where to start and what information you may need to begin using some other genealogy web sites.

One excellent web site specifically designed to search for German ancestors is: http://www.genealogienetz.de/index_en.html.

A good web site for genealogy in general is http://myfamilyinc.com/, which also includes a specific page on searching for German relatives (albeit in German): www.ancestry.de.

Another extensive genealogy web site is the Mormon Church's www.familysearch.org.

Another is the American website http://germanoriginality.com/heritage/genealogy_links.php.
