Jewish Ancestors? : A Guide to Jewish Genealogy in Germany & Austria
This book is written from the point of view of people in Great Britain tracing Jewish genealogy, but the clear explanation and mass of detail will make it useful for anyone using German and Austrian records. It shows how the borders of Germany and the Austro-Hungarian Empire changed, describes civil registration, and lists relevant libraries and Genealogy Societies in Germany and Austria. It has substantial information on records of the Holocaust, and on emigration during the 1930s. There is a bibliography, and suggested phrases in German for including in letters of enquiry to libraries and registration authorities.
