The latest Map Guide to German Parish Registers is now in our collections. This one covers a large section of Bavaria.
Kevan M. Hansen has so far compiled nineteen books in this series, which was created to make it easier for those of us on this side of the ocean to access German church records. If you have a place name or even a general area in any of the locations currently available, these books will help you find the right parishes and will also give pointers on accessing the records.
So far, guides are available for Hessen, Baden, Mecklenburg, Oldenburg, Wurttemberg (4 volumes), Hessen-Nassau, Rhineland (3 volumes), and Bavaria (6 volumes).
All the books have the same call number (SC 943 HAN). Come on in and take a look!
