Format: Paperback Verified Purchase. The sub-title of "A complete guide to tracing your ancestors in the Germanic areas of Europe" is rather misleading.

It is not "complete" by any stretch of the imagination. This is a very brief introduction pages of text to a very large topic. Some aspects of German research are treated in only the most cursory manner - the Lutheran church covered in a chapter of a single page while the Germans in Canada are dealt with in only 3 pages.

The section on German record types leaves the reader wishing for more information. Which is the feeling the entire book gives "I wish there was more here". While this book has been updated to reflect the reunification of Germany, this is not Angus Baxter's best book. Because this book compares poorly with his other works, I have given it only two stars. This book was recommended by a woman at my local genealogy society and it is well worth the money.

I have had some trouble with tracing my German ancestry because of all the changes in borders, etc. This book gives a very good synopsis of Germany's history. The author lists many resources for searching for German records and even tells how to write a letter requesting information.

It is available at my local library but I am glad I bought my own copy as it is something I will get a lot of use out of.

One person found this helpful. General information and some specific tips and references that are very helpful. Format: Paperback. If you're researching German ancestors who emigrated to the U.

He describes the different groups that settled in specific areas, including their place of origin, religious background, and dates of migration.
