So, You’ve Found Your German Town of Origin, Now What?

Theresa Steinkamp McMillin

Finding your ancestor's town of origin can be exciting, indeed. Once this piece of information is found, you might be left wondering how to get records from the other side of the ocean. This lecture focuses on how to get records for German towns. Highlights include:

  • Verifying the location of the town

  • Strategies for identifying misspelled town names

  • Finding historical jurisdictions for that town

  • Finding records for that town

  • Useful aids for reading those records

  • Tips for hiring a professional genealogist in Germany, when necessary

In addition to sharing fellowship with like-minded genealogists at the monthly meetings, members receive an informative newsletter six time a year. An additional benefit of membership is the opportunity to participate in one of our three writers' groups. The groups meet once a month on Mondays: at 10 am, 1:30 pm, and 7 pm.


We are pleased to partner with both the Glenview and Northbrook libraries. Be sure to stop by and become familiar with their genealogy resources. If you need help getting started with your genealogy or solving a genealogical problem come to a monthly meeting and meet others willing to help you.
