Now Online: Meyer’s German Gazetteer

by , under Church Records, German, Maps, Online Research

Meyer’s German Gazetteer, long an important tool for geographical research, is now online, indexed and fully searchable! That’s good news, but here is even more good news: While original book is in German, this interface is translated into English.

If you are seeking a geographical place in the old German Empire (1871-1918), check out this new online resource: “Meyers Orts- und Verkehrs-lexikon des Deutschen Reichs.” Go to:

This resource will give you the location of the village, state, civil registry office, and parish e (if the town had one), as well as other useful information.

I’ve already started to use this valuable new resource. It is very user friendly.
