Were your German ancestors SPD, CDU, Republican, Democrat, Tory, Labor or even a Know-Nothing?

I don’t know the political persuasion of my German ancestors, but I know they loved their families and were frustrated with the system–as are many of us. They & we are just doing the best we know how. Nobody can expect any more than that. I’m doing some fund-raising for Christian, conservative & non-profit causes like National Right to Life, Concerned Women of America, Navigators, Salvation Army, CARE, et al.

German Genealogy 101 or “How we saved our clients THOUSANDS of $!”

CAVEAT RESEARCHOR:  OK, so you’ve heard it a hundred times, but I must reveal it as a German genealogy research pre-requisite:  Exhaust all home & family sources prior to doing online or onsite genealogical research.

Usually in German-American research–even if you are aware of the precise name of the parish of origin in the Old World–it is generally wise to exhaust the various interesting & informative USA county, state & federal records & immigration resources. 

Also, there’s usually not much sense in “jumping across the pond” to Germany to do your German genealogy research in any country of Europe that had Germans–until you’ve ascertained the name of the parish of origin!  Yes, that is much easier said than done, of course. 

Two decades ago, I wrote an article for the Genealogy Helper Magazine. Thesis: by doing comprehensive USA, immigration and German ancestral & genealogical research, aka Deutsche Ahnenforschung, you’ll be so much more pleased with what you have for the data, documentation & image presentation of the family’s history!  You’ll also more than likely be much more prepared to get into the thick of Germanic research in the Old Country.

We refer to not only the resources of which you are aware, but also those about which a professional German researcher or global Germanic genealogist.  Our having inspected the foundations of numerous clients’ allegedly firm foundations, we found cracks & crevasses (OK, crevices, too{;>). 

COST, EFFORT & TIME-SAVING RESULTS:  Prevented our clients from having dug at the wrong roots (or no roots at all!)
