Tips for genealogical research

The data bases and catalogues that are accessible through the internet can help to sort data systematically and thematically.

A church register is an index of persons and contains records about ecclesiastic official acts, primarily about sacrament donations. Among these are baptisms, weddings and funerals, but also lists of confirmations and registers of members of a parish. A library is a service facility centered around the information published in all kinds of ways.

For genealogists, libraries are of special interest to gain access to technical literature, to collections of information or historic maps that are required for the research of one’s own roots.

Numerous historical sources have been collected in archives. Ambitioned genealogists especially find important clues for their work in military archives and emigration lists.
