German Census Records, 1816-1916: The When, Where, And How Of A Valuable Genealogical Resource, Roger P Minert, Ph.D., A.G

6 German Census Records, 1816-1916: The When, Where, And How Of A Valuable Genealogical Resource
Roger P Minert, Ph.D., A.G
260 pp; 8.5x11
Special Price: $29, regular price: $34.95 After wondering for several years why American researchers know very little about German census records, my good friend, Dr. Roger Minert, found an opportunity to live in Europe for six months to investigate them. He was sure that many existed, but he could find very little information about them. While in Europe, he learned that even German researchers know very little about their census records! How could such a potentially important resource be lost to obscurity? In a new book, written in English, researchers can now learn where and when German census records were compiled, as well as why and how. The author also describes state by state the content of census records and explains how surviving census documents can be located. This is groundbreaking information, of enormous value to anyone researching their German roots. Would you like additional information about your family in old country? The information found in the parish registers is key to your research, but there's often even more family information to find in the German census records. The following Table of Contents is found in the volume: Acknowledgements Introduction Chapter 1: A History of Census Records in the German States Chapter 2: The Census of 1867: The Great Transition Chapter 3: Census Records during the German Empire 1871-1918 Chapter 4: Census Records in the German States from 1816 to 1864 Chapter 5: Anhalt Chapter 6: Baden Chapter 7: Bayern [Bavaria] Chapter 8: Brandenburg Chapter 9: Braunschweig [Brunswick] Chapter 10: Bremen (Hansestadt Bremen) Chapter 11: Elsaß-Lothringen {Alsace-Lorraine] Chapter 12: Hamburg (Hansestadt Hamburg) Chapter 13: Hannover [Hanover] Chapter 14: Hessen [Hesse] Chapter 15: Hessen-Nassau [Hesse-Nassau] Chapter 16: Hohenzollern Chapter 17: Lippe Chapter 18: Lübeck (Hansestadt Lübeck) [Luebeck] Chapter 19: Mecklenburg-Schwerin Chapter 20: Mecklenburg-Strelitz Chapter 21: Oldenburg Chapter 22: Ostpreußen [East Prussia] Chapter 23: Pommern [Pomerania] Chapter 24: Posen Chapter 25: Reuß älterer Linie [Reuss Elder Line] Chapter 26: Reuß jüngere Linie [Reuss Younger Line] Chapter 27: Rheinprovinz [Rhineland Province] Chapter 28: Sachsen-Altenburg [Saxe-Altenburg] Chapter 29: Sachsen-Meiningen [Saxe-Meiningen] Chapter 30: Königreich Sachsen [Kingdom of Saxony] Chapter 31: Sachsen-Meiningen [Saxe-Meiningen] Chapter 32: Provinz Sachsen [Province of Saxony] Chapter 33: Sachsen-Weimar-Eisenach [Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach] Chapter 34: Schaumburg-Lippe Chapter 35: Schlesian [Silesia] Chapter 36: Schleswig-Holstein Chapter 37: Schwarzburg-Rudolstadt Chapter 38: Schwarzburg-Sondershausen Chapter 39: Waldeck Chapter 40: Westfalen [Westphalia] Chapter 41: Westpreußen [West Prussia] Chapter 42: Württemberg [Wuerttemberg] Chapter 43: German Census Records from 1816-1916: What Do We Know Now?
