  1. Welcome to the website of the German Digital Library! And first of all, to create confusion: No, we are not a "real" library. Then what are we? The library in our name should be understood more like the English word "library": as a collection of different media and objects that can be researched, viewed and downloaded. What we are not: a library where B. can borrow current e-books. Books or full texts that you can find with us can simply be read or downloaded if they are no longer subject to copyright. What else do you get from us? In addition to the objects already mentioned, such as books and texts, you will also find archival materials, pictures and photographs, sculptures, pieces of music and other sound documents, films and sheet music, manuscripts and much more. Ultimately, everything that can also be found in German museums, libraries, archives and media libraries is just digital. https://www.deutsche-digitale-bibliothek.de/ View full record
  2. The Archives Portal Europe provides access to information on archival material from different European countries as well as information on archival institutions throughout the continent. https://www.archivesportaleurope.net/ View full record

  4. I have begun to integrate a Familty Tree Program to the website in the hope I can integrate it with the rest of the website. I have uploaded a working Gedcom and am playing arould with features. If this works I may get serious about hosting those many family trees that I have researched over the years. On the Navigation Bar, click on genealogy, once there, click on Nielson in upper left corner to get to the tree. Seems the Gedcom is searchable as well.
  5. I worked on this last fall, then took a holiday from the family tree for the winter. Now that I am looking at it again I feel I have forgotten how I created a good source in FTM 2019 and how to consistently repeat that process. Today I will restart my sourcing journey using Family Tree Maker 2019 from Mac Kiev. Once I get comfortable with the process and the outcome I will come back and type in the process I ended up using and hope it helps others with sourcing. I am a hobbiest, so you need to decide how you are going to source.
  6. I was certain I had a book about the early polish military and cavalry. Have to go searching for it.
  7. We have been focusing on the Marne area in Schleswig-Holstein. Some of the church records are available through Ancestry. Nothing much is ready at Archion. Are there any other sources you are using?
  8. still haven't found that letter from a colonel to Washington or his staff.

  10. The person listed in the Palatines book, is that your relative? Johann Georg Hähn? Maybe from Rengsdorf? How are you associating him to Alpenrod?
  11. ok, I have that book, let me see what I can pull together. Based upon the link you have quite a lot of data, are you concerned about the validity or sourcing of it? If so, which pieces? I see you are looking for the baptism of George Henn as one example.

  13. I have access to Archion. If you are willing to post as much as you know about them I can try to find the records. If you prefer, message me the information. When you say the Hank Jones books, can you be specific as to which one, he made a few.
  14. Seems every year I find a need to re-evaluate my research and the website focus. I spent the better part of last year researching my Tagge line, but that has a long way to go. I am just getting through one church's marriage records and then have to consider the baptisms and deaths. Should be enlightening as I document more sources. For the website? I think it is in a good state. In time I hope to pull a bit more infomration together for the library books, but originally thought that would occur as I used them. Not sure that will get much on line though as I am researching in European records for the foreseable future.
