*To begin using the records of Germany, knowing that your family came from Saxony will not be enough to use the records of Germany. Records are kept on the local level, so you will have to know the town they lived in.

**where the closest Evangelical Lutheran or Catholic parish church was (depending on their religion),

If you do not yet know the name of the town of your ancestor's birth, there are well-known strategies for a thorough hunt for it.

*Use [https://familysearch.org/wiki/en/Germany_Gathering_Information_to_Locate_Place_of_Origin '''Gathering Information to Locate Place of Origin'''] as a guide in exhausting every possible record to find what you need.

What do you know about your ancestor? When was he born, when did he marry, when did he emigrate? Do you need records from the 20th,&nbsp;19th, 18th or 17th century? Keep in mind that the most correct research comes from looking up primary sources, records that were established by the authorities with which your ancestor had to do business. To begin your research&nbsp;

Find Important Information About Your Ancestors' Town

  • To begin using the records of Germany, knowing that your family came from Saxony will not be enough to use the records of Germany. Records are kept on the local level, so you will have to know the town they lived in.
  • Details about the town will also help:
    • the county or "Bezirkamt or Kreis" of that town,
    • where the closest Evangelical Lutheran or Catholic parish church was (depending on their religion),
    • where the civil registration office ("Standesamt") was, and
    • if you have only a village name, you will need the name of the larger town it was part of.

Gathering Information to Locate Place of Origin

If you do not yet know the name of the town of your ancestor's birth, there are well-known strategies for a thorough hunt for it.

Details: Meyers Gazetteer

Once you know the town name you need, the other facts you need are contained in Meyers Orts- und Verkehrs-lexikon des deutschen Reichs, the gazetteer on which the FamilySearch catalog for Germany is based.

  • Use MeyersGaz, the digital gazetteer, to find the details you need, particularly the Bezirksamt it belonged to, found after (BA) and the Regierungsbezirk (Administrative District) Niederbayern (RB).
  • MeyersGaz Help Guide
  • Abbreviation Table
  • Here is part of an entry from MeyersGaz.org.

The most important facts here are:

  1. Wellheim is in Eichstätt Bezirksamt (BA).
  2. It is in Regierungsbezirk (Administrative District) Middle Franconia (MFranken) (RB)
  3. It has its own Standesamt (StdA) or civil registration office.
  4. It has one Catholic parish church (kath. K.).
  5. By clicking on the "Ecclesiastical" option, we learn that the Protest church for Wellheim is in Eichstätt. We also find other nearby churches.
