  • MAP GUIDES TO GERMAN PARISH REGISTERS

The German Map Guide Books identify the parish where an ancestor went to church in Germany, based on where they lived. They also give the Family History Library microfilm number for the parish records and this identifies nearly every city, town and place that included residents. Also they visually identify church parishes for Lutherans and Catholics within each district. Prices are: Soft Cover: AUS $65.00

Next publications :- Free and Hanseatic City of Lübeck,  Free and Hanseatic City of Bremen,  Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg. (3 – 4 Volumes)
