  • Historical Atlas of Germany

    Posted by Rodney Donelly on 26th Nov 2020

    A good quality book as far as production goes. However I found it somewhat difficult to compare maps of different eras as they did not always encompass the exact same area. Also I could not locate Feudingen, Westfalen, Prussia. Wanted to see if it was in Bavaria or associated with Bavaria at some time. Could not find it in index or on any maps. It appears in BDMs for Germany so must exist.

  • Worthwhile purchase

    Beautifully presented with clear and detailed information that is easy to understand. A brief written record for each time frame, coloured maps clearly indicating the changes throughout time, a German glossary and village index as well as many other vital and beneficial inclusions have provided me with invaluable insights into the complex geographical and historical changes that have occurred throughout the centuries to Germany and the Germanic peoples. Defintiely an asset that will help me to understand and trace my German forebears. I highly recormmended it for anyone researching their German and Prussian background.
