Researching in German Archives Webinar-Free

carrotarms
 

Hello to the group. I hope this is not an inappropriate posting. This week I watched a  wonderful free webinar all about researching in German Archives.  It is free until May 26th, 2020 on 

The presenter is Theresa Steinkamp McMillen and the title is "Discover the Holdings of German Archives.  The sylllabus is free until May 26th also.  It contains links to all the major areas of German Archives. I highly recommend any one should watch it if interested in German Genealogy. I learned a lot.  Sincerely, Carrie T in VA

Thank you, David.    I appreciate the new information.   This is very helpful.

 

In the interim since I posted this,  I have made connections with a distant cousin living in Germany who is going to the Archiv on my behalf.

My understanding is that the Archiv now has some special rules for visiting related to the Coronavirus.     Some of the Munster Archiv collection is viewable online.

 

Best Wishes,

 

Steve

G’day Steve

 

I missed your original post.  There’s the Association of German Speaking Professional Genealogists:

< https://berufsgenealogie.net/english/start.html >

 

And there’s also the American based Association of Professional Genealogists which has members in Germany.

< https://www.apgen.org/cpages/home >

 

Over the years, I used the services of members of both associations with good results.

 

Happy hunting

I want to know if anyone has any experience with Münster Archiv

 

I want to learn best practice for gaining access to those documents.   I have worked with other Archiv in Germany and wanted to see if anyone has personal experience with Münster Archiv.

 

Do you know if they will scan the documents and send to me?    Do they require you from America to use a German genealogist from an approved list that they have?   Then, they will allow that Researcher to schedule a time to look at the Documents.

If so, can anyone recommend a researcher for the Münster Archiv?

 

I sincerely appreciate any help someone can provide.

This was waiting until my computer was available because I didn't want to attempt a reply on my phone. I'll add my 2 cents' worth in case no one has replied.

I have not had personal experience with the Münster Archiv, but a plea on a mailing list perhaps 20 years ago was answered by a man who had access to farm histories on file there. This history took in a time period around 1700 including a divorce recorded in 1705. I don't know what to suggest except to join a German mailing list (most accept queries in English and reply in English) and ask for help finding someone who will help you. Probably this will be a professional genealogist who you will have to pay.

Yes, I signed the petition.  Thank you for letting us know . . . . records in the US show that one of my husband's ancestors may have come from Bamberg or some town with similar spelling/pronounciation, so I would love to see those records.

I’ve just done it too – in English, though probably should have done it in German! A great idea, perhaps there are others we can also petition. After all for most of us, we cannot easily access these records.

Hello all -

Today I received (via the Franken list), an online Petition requesting that the Cath. archives in Regensburg, Bavaria digitize their microfilmed churchbooks and make them available to everyone online free.  It's getting overwhelming support, and I hope you all will sign it as I have.  These records were supposed to be online years ago, and there has been no movement from Regensburg, Bamberg or Wurzburg, etc.  Perhaps this will light a fire under them.  It will also preserve these valuable records survive in the event of a fire or other natural disaster.  Please do your part and sign the petition which is also available in English.

Checked FamilySearch, the records for Bergstein is limited to microfilms at Family History Library.

I would do that lookup, if you send me details personally to be added to the look up list, to be ready the day Family History Library is re-opened.

It has come to me unverified that my Gr8-Gr8-Gr8 grandfather Friedrich Augustus Pauli came from Luebben, Dahme-Spreewald, Brandenberg, Germany.
His dates are born 1806  there and died 1859 here is Clarence, New York.
His wife was Susanna ? (no maiden name) born 1803.
They arrived in Clarence, New York on or just before 1850 where they settled on Transit Rd.
On the 1850 census is listed in order of age:
Susanna, August, Johannes, Peter, Jacob and Anna.
Please can some one help me with this Brandenburg address?
I am Catholic so I am presuming they were also.
