Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This book is designed to aid beginners in finding ancestors in areas that now are or once were part of Germany. It excludes other Germanic areas like historic Austria and Switzerland. Readers will find addresses of archives and libraries, descriptions of key sources, and advice about how to find relatives in Germany today. Originally published in 1987, this edition's new items include a map of united Germany, additional addresses of records' custodians, descriptions of the new Laender (states) of eastern Germany, and postal codes for selected cities in these areas. A few new titles have been added to the bibliography. The best book on the subject is in German: Taschenbuch fuer Fami liengeschichtsforschung , edited by Wolfgang Ribbe and Eckart Henning (Neustadt and der Aisch: Verlag Degener & Co., 1990. 10th ed.). For those who do not read German, Baxter's book is the best substitute. The author excludes non-English materials from his bibliography and does not use notes in the text. He clearly relied heavily upon German resources, but which ones and how current were they? Researchers with roots in eastern Germany and libraries serving them will want this new edition.-- Raymond S. Wright III, Brigham Young Univ., Provo, Ut.

This fourth update of Baxter's popular title takes the search to the net and includes web site and email addresses wherever possible among its resources. The focus isn't just on Germany but on of all Europe's Germanic areas.
