Maps and gazetteers are essential for family historians. Knowing where our German families came from and locating that place in a gazetteer and on a map, is extremely important as we search for records that reference them.
Importantly it will place them in the community, show the names of surrounding villages, and provide information on the local terrain.
In Germany we must know the place to progress our research as records are held locally rather than centrally, as they are in many other countries.
This handy guide gives readers plenty of links to maps and gazetteers that can be found online, as well as information on how to use them. A must for everyone researching their German roots.
