 1.  Alsace-Lorraine Place Name Indexes: Identifying Place Names Using Alphabetical and Reverse Alphabetical Indexes
Roger P. Minert, Ph.D., A.G.
Soft-cover, 99 pp., 0.25 x 10.75 x 8.5, GRT Publications
For the first time, a reverse alphabetical index is available to the public. Such indexes have been known and valued among researchers in the Family History Library for some time, but none have been available in print or microform. The Reverse Alphabetical Index allows the researcher to determine the name of a town when the first part of the name (whether one or more letters) is missing. This is a common problem caused by torn pages, ink blots, tight bindings, poor microfilm quality, etc. By using this index, the researcher can also determine the official spelling for towns when variant spellings occur in old records. The book includes a regular alphabetical index of all the towns in the province as will as regular and reverse alphabetical listings of over 400 names of German kingdoms, duchies, principalities, counties, rivers, mountain ranges, and other geopolitical and topographical entities.

 8.  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?

 9.  Germans to America and the Hamburg Passenger Lists: Coordinated Schedules
Roger P. Minert, Ph.D., A.G., Kathryn Boeckel, Caren Winters
(2005), 2007, 8½x11, paper, 168 pp, Heritage Books
This index combines information from two of the best German immigration sources available today, Germans to America and The Hamburg Passenger Lists. Germans to America, published in 1988, is an index of names of Germans on the ships' passenger lists filed at ports of arrival in the United States. The book spared many researchers the difficult task of searching dozens of individual passenger lists. The Hamburg Passenger Lists are a collection of records that contain comprehensive data on passengers departing Germany. If the emigrant boarded the ship in Hamburg, what Germans to America does not provide may be available in The Hamburg Passenger Lists. These coordinated schedules of arrival and departure records complement each other and can streamline your German family history research. This large-format book is arranged in tables and contains complete instructions for use.

 17.  Researching in Germany: A Handbook for Your Visit to the Homeland of Your Ancestors
Roger P. Minert, A.G., Ph.D., and Shirley J. Riemer
2013; 254 pages; illustrated; indexed, Lorelei Press
NEW 2013 EDITION!!
Researching in Germany is the only book ever published for the express purpose of preparing German-ancestor hunters to travel abroad in search of their German roots.
Researching in Germany is made to order for family historians who have long dreamed of visiting the villages of their German ancestors, but have not felt knowledgeable about how to proceed.
Overview of the book
This goldmine of information serves as an essential aid for
1) German family historians who do not speak German,
2) travelers who feel insecure about getting around in a country whose ways are strange to them,
3) German family history researchers with little or no experience in making use of research repositories in German-speaking areas.
In addition, included in this book are the many suggestions for taking advantage of the many sight-seeing and recreational activities available to the traveler in Germany.
Researching in Germany places emphasis on:
1) step-by-step preparation needed before the traveler leaves home,
2) descriptions of what to expect and how to deal with the details of everyday living abroad,
3) packing for the trip and
4) measures to take to ensure the greatest possible success in conducting family research at archives, parish offices, and libraries.
Although the title names "Germany" as the research site, the book includes research and travel information pertaining to other German-speaking areas of Europe, including Austria, Switzerland, and Alsace-Lorraine. Information is included as well for archival research in the Czech Republic, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Poland, and Slovenia.
Five appendices provide aids for solving practical problems of research and for overcoming problems for travelers who do not speak German:
"English-German Vocabulary"
"German-English Vocabulary"
"Vital Records Vocabulary"
"Reading German Handwritten Church Records"
"Letters to Germany in Preparation for the Trip"
