FamilySearch Centers From FamilySearch Wiki via “Karl Sala” via probably G David Dilts of the FHL of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Salt Lake City &/or Ann Roach, a private German Genealogist who has–just like me–volunteered many hours at the FHL in Salt Lake City & in FHCs other states & countries. This, to help patrons with their German-American Genealogy & Euro-German Genealogy & global German Genealogy in other worldwide countries research.
There were certainly several East European areas where Germans were residing which are not shown on this map. E.g. many German Lutherans in Lithuania (Littau). There, Lynell & Karl-Michael Sala skillfully & massively researched the difficult old German handwriting & German Genealogy of SCHWELLNUS (SZWELNUS), et al. for a client who resides in South Africa. However, this demographic map is a good start.
