    2. W David Samuelsen
    3. Beginning March 2nd, 2020 the Mailing Lists functionality on RootsWeb will be discontinued. Users will no longer be able to send outgoing emails or accept incoming emails.  Additionally, administration tools will no longer be available to list administrators and mailing lists will be put into an archival state.  Administrators may save the emails in their list prior to March 2nd. After that, mailing list archives will remain available and searchable on RootsWeb In light of this... new list set up to cover entire state. https://groups.io/g/German-genealogy-ENG (up and running since Jan 10) Scroll down to blue button "Join this Group" Ignore this if you already moved there. After checking around for any existence of German genealogy in English, there were none, the lists that do exist are posted in German language only. I already checked Google Groups, too. I will re-send the invites to those who ignored the emails in first place. This will go on once every 2 weeks until the shut down.

    3. So.... here we go again having corporate America shove their new procedure up our nostrils! I agree with your assessment of the message boards because of the frustration of not been able to contact people. I am now having the same frustration of trying to send messages via their DNA/Family Tree page. For months, the rejection message has been.... try again later. I have been able to somewhat circumvent the rejection message by using Facebook and Google for individuals with the name name. Maybe eventually the DNA portion will be castoff like they did with Family Tree Maker. Good luck to us in the future! Bob (Ft.

    2. HI: Sure hope this goes through. I am related to Dexheimes, and Knoblock, and I think you also. I am descended from the Alt family of Morscheim, My great-grandfather's sister Katherine Alt married Adam Knoblock from Orbis. Johann Peter Alt married Anna Christina Dexheimer in Morscheim in 1815 There is a web of second marriages and descendents from those lines which gets rather confusing, but I have tried to wind my way through and am still confused.

    2. Lisa Eschenburg
    3. Actually David, Ancestry websites have a lot of church records from Germany and I mean digitized images. Of course availability of records varies by area of Germany or former-Germany and varies by religion. And often the records are not indexed so you have to browse. They can be found under the Birth, Marriage, and Death category. Sometimes the data collection does not show up when you a just looking at the country. So you need to drill down to the province level. Other times you have to remember what country your location is located in now. For example the village and parish lie in Poland now so look under Poland and check the sub-area too. Again for some reason some data collections do not appear at the country level. *Here is my first example.* The Family History Library/FamilySearch had microfilmed all of the Evangelische church records in Mecklenburg-Schwerin and you could rent the films at your local Family History Center. Until recently those microfilm were not digitized and available on FamilySearch which they are now but you have to view them at your local FHC or the FHL in Salt Lake or an affiliate FHC. BUT TWO YEARS AGO Ancestry added that whole collection digitized and with an index of sorts. I say of sorts but not every record is indexed and the quality of the index is not that great. There is no consistency of indexing the birth (when there is one) or the baptism date and often they index location just by the parish not the actual village of birth. And they were not consistent in how they labeled parishes so trying to limit searches of indexed records to just on parish is difficult. But the record images are there for use! In addition there are at least four different record database collections for Lutheran records all covering much of the same years. Each contains Lutheran records from a variety of provinces so you need to check for your parish in all the different record database collections. I think it would have been more organized to have a separate database collection for each province or just one database collection containing all provinces instead of three of separate collections. Oh and even though the collections are labeled Lutheran for some areas they contain records from other non-catholic churches. *My second example. *Several years ago Ancestry got an agreement with Brandenburg State Archives so they could digitize and host parish church records that the Family History Library/FamilySearch has never had. At first these were browse only images but now there is an index but again I doubt every record in indexed yet. This database collection has changed names a few times and is currently called Brandenburg, Germany, Transcripts of Church Records, 1700-1874 but it is not just and index they are digitized images of the church books which are second copies by the way. Lastly, I hope everyone knows that on FamilySearch there are two places to find digitized records. But for both remember that digitized images that are not indexed will not show up in the search results. So you need to manually browse the digitized microfilm by scrolling thru like you have manually roll the microfilm forward and back when looking at actual microfilm. 1. Records, browse all records. Filter by country and then state/province. But not all digitized microfilm appear in the Records tab. To find the rest ... 2. Catalog, for church records enter in the location of the parish meaning the village that had the parish. Remember not all villages have a church so they went to church in a neighboring village. For other records and other places you have to search by the level of government that controls the records. In the USA this is often by county, township or town level or city. Check all possible levels. Hope this helps.

    3. You're right on the mark. Yes and no to Barb's question - It depends on what FamilySearch and Ancestry have. Ancestry generally do not have church records for Germany, they do have for civil records for certain areas. Neither have Bavaria's most records which is a sore point for many of us. David S.
