RT1304 - German Census Records: A New Genealogical Source

Session Description

The third most important source of genealogical data in the German-language regions of Europe is census records. Before the German Empire was established in 1871, census records have a sporadic history there. German census records were kept at different times in different provinces, with varying procedures and content, such that they are not comparable to the U.S. Federal Census. The presenter just returned from a six-month sabbatical in Europe and can now make sense of this traditional puzzle.
