Discover online records for German-speaking ancestors from Brandenburg, East Prussia, Pomerania, Posen, Silesia, and West Prussia. Despite record losses for these geographic areas, hundreds of years of church and civil records can be found in archives in Poland, Germany, and the U.S., using the search strategies in this presentation.

Prussian? German? Or Both?

My personal excursion into Prussian primary sources came 15 years ago, when I began researching my mother’s maternal immigrant ancestor grandparents. They were Prussian in one census and German in another. Birth, marriage, death records were the same. Eventually, using online primary sources, I discovered that my German ancestors were actually Prussians. And in my new webinar I’ll show you the resources and search strategies to do the same.
