The table below lists the Constituent States of Germany and their respective Capitals. This is a good starting place when preparing to research German ancestors. Though maps change over time, records of specific localities may still be found in the current State archives. All State pages are now starting to be populated. Please refer to the sitewide German Forums link above to share information or ask questions.

One objective is to help German researchers discover those who have left the German-speaking world and come to North America.

Ein Ziel ist es, deutschen Forschern dabei zu helfen, diejenigen zu entdecken, die den deutschsprachigen Raum verlassen haben und nach Nordamerika kommen.

Our Germany state pages are taking shape and content is now being provided. In the coming months we will continue these efforts and hope to have meaningful and helpful content linked to these pages. Maybe some of the informaation provided will help you in your research. If you do not find something here, please use the forum for any questions you might have. We may have information that is not yet posted to our pages areas.
