'''These records may contain the following information:'''

== How to Use the Record  ==
 
 
 
To search the collection, select "Browse through images" on the initial collection page ⇒ Select the “Quellengattung, Zeitraum, und Bandnummer” which takes you to the images.
 
 
 
Look at the images one by one comparing the information with what you already know about your ancestors to determine which one is your ancestor. You may need to compare the information about more than one person to make this determination.
 
 
 
Next to parish registers, citizen rolls provide some of the best family information. To begin your search you need to know at least the name of your ancestor and some identifying information such as birthdate. If you know only the age, you can approximate the birthdate. Use the birthdate and place, to locate your ancestor in church records.
 
 
 
The records are in written in German Gothic script. For help reading the records see the wiki articles:
 
 
 
*[[German Word List|German Word List]]
 
*[[Deciphering German Script (Kurrentschrift)|Deciphering German Script (Kurrentschrift)]]
 
 
 
=== Tips to Keep in Mind  ===
 
 
 
When using these records keep in mind:
 
 
 
*The information may be incorrect.
 
*The ages listed may not be correct.
 
*A given name may not be the same as the name used in vital records.
 
*Names may be spelled as they sound.
 
*Place-names may be misspelled.
 
*Some parts of the record may be illegible.
 
*If the family is not at the expected location, you should search the surrounding area.
