Now on to today's crate with John Palmer in charge. If you have German ancestry, and you want to search the parish registers, these are what you need to get you started. You will love these!

 

Crazy crate JP 81: Hello Everyone,

 

GERMAN PARISH REGISTERS.

 

As you may recall, through your genealogical research, you've discovered that over 25 percent of our immigrant ancestors came from the various areas that we now call Germany.  Germany, as we know it, has had a number of different political and geographical configurations.

 

Prior to 1848 most of what we now know as Germany was a series of individual principalities and kingdoms. In 1848 many of these areas united in what became known as the German Confederation. In 1871 Prussia and its various areas united with the German Confederation and formed the German Empire.

 

Every year the Palatines to America and the German Interest Group (in Whitewater, Wisconsin) as well as several other groups host genealogical conferences.

 

We have been fortunate to attend many of the Palatines to America conferences and have also recently been attending the German Interest Group conference as well.  Unfortunately, not every one can attend the conferences.

 

So this Crazy Crate will concentrate on German research materials that you may find helpful in tracing your family genealogy.

 

Normally, these books sell for $34.95 each, but I'm offering a CRAZY CRATE SPECIAL PRICE of only $30.00 for each volume. We only have one copy of each title, so it is, as always, first come first served.

 

MAP GUIDES TO GERMAN PARISH REGISTERS

 

A major genealogical brick wall for most Americans is the transition across the ocean to their ancestral homeland in Germany.

 

Unlike American genealogical research, where we find our people on the census once every ten years, and where the place to search for basic vital records is usually a civil registration office in the same place (such as a city, county or state); In Germany, with a few exceptions, only a few census records exist, and most family research is accomplished by the use of local parish records.  While early nineteenth-century civil birth registrations exist for some areas, principally those invaded by Napoleon, civil registration should not be counted on for the majority of German vital records research.

  

In 18th and 19th century German-speaking areas, one must search the parish registers for Catholic, Lutheran, and other churches to find the births, christenings, marriages, deaths, and burials.

 

The historic boundaries of the old German parishes have not been defined except in very general terms, particularly for the mid-to-late 1800s. This book remedies that problem and serves as a road map to those records.

 

Many German parish registers have been microfilmed and are available through the Family History Library and Family History Centers. If this is the case, the initial film number for that parish is also found in the Parish Key, thus speeding your research.

 

The following books are not meant to serve as a beginner's guide to conducting German research. Their purpose is to aid in identifying what church records to search if a specific town is known. If only a general area is known, perhaps from a passenger list or naturalization record, this resource can also aid in identifying which church parishes can be found in that locality and facilitate accessing those records.

 

The graphic view portrayed in the accompanying maps makes identifying neighboring parishes, or perhaps districts, a task of minutes. By referring to the included microfilm numbers of the Family History Library it can quickly be determined if records are available to search locally or if correspondence is required.

 

These places are as of about 1870. If the place existed prior to that date, it will most likely be listed. If the place was named after that date, the chances drop.

 

Here is how each book can help you!:

 

1.) Identifies the parish where your ancestor went to church based on where they lived.

 

2.) Gives the Family History Library microfilm number for your family's parish records.

 

3.) Identifies every city, town and place that included residents.

 

4.) Visually identifies church parishes for Lutherans and Catholics within each district.

 

5.) Identifies neighboring parishes, just in case your ancestor may have gone to an alternate parish.

 

6. Aids in conducting area searches, particularly across district or regional borders.

 

7.) Provides visual identification of the search area in which to look for your family.

 

8.) Helps in determining proximity of one area to another.

 

9.) Aids in determination of reasonable travel distances from one area to another.

 

10.) Identifies population centers in each church parish.

 

11.) Identifies archives, repositories and other resources.

 

12.) Aids in identifying the location of minority religions.

 

And, now for our list: [These are all the ones available at this time, but this is an on-going project.]
