German Genealogy Research Online – Tips And Links is now available in .PDF (Adobe Acrobat) format. Leland’s popular addendum to The German Researcher, is now available in electronic format. The electronic version costs less than the printed option; however, both remain free as an addendum for those who purchase The German Researcher.
Here is a copy of previous review of the guide:
Anyone who knows Leland Meitzler, operator of the GenealogyBlog, knows he has a passion for German research. Now, he has turned his personal experience into a new book, German Genealogy Research Online: Tips and Links. Written to help genealogists with online research, the book deals with using the Internet to advance an individual’s Germanic genealogy.
Here’s what the book covers:
- Finding Pictures, Images and Websites for Your Ancestral Home
- Finding and Using Online German Gazetteers
- FamilySearch German Databases
- Online German Surname Distribution Maps
- Translating Online German Websites
- The International Genealogical Index (IGI) Online
- Full German State Archives Addresses & Contact Information
- 30 Helpful Online German Research Resources
The book is small but packed full of critical data to German research. With its updated addresses and resources, it also makes an excellent addendum to The German Researcher. In fact, the two go so well together that Family Roots Publishing is offering a free copy of German Genealogy Research Online, a $6.95 value, for free with every purchase of The German Researcher (see a review by clicking here).
