German Genealogy Tip #26: How to Read German Civil Registrations (A Guide)

I got a fun little treat in my email inbox last night from Ancestry.com — a printable guide to reading German civil registrations (government records of births, marriages, and deaths). I have personally had a lot of practice reading these, but I am so glad that Ancestry.com is sending these guides out to researchers. Researching our German ancestors in Germany is so important to gaining perspective on their lives. If you didn’t get the email with the guide from Ancestry.com, here is a link to the PDF file: http://c.ancestry.com/cs/media/social-research-german-civil-registration.pdf
