So what resources are available? During this past month, a page was added on the Hamilton County Genealogical Society that is devoted to German genealogy. There is a wealth of information all nicely-organized in one place on our German Interest Group page. HCGS Members can also access a video presentation by Jeff Herbert on What's New in German Research.
Jeff discussed several websites available for German research. Here is a list:
International German Genealogy Partnership www.iggpartner.org
Oldenburg Emigration Records www.honkomp.de/damme-auswanderung
Oldenburg Emigration Records Index www.auswanderer-oldenburg.de/index.php
Oldenburg Church Records www.fak-om.de//admin.php
Matricula (Online Catholic Records) www.matricula-online.eu
Archion (Online Protestant Records) www.archion.de
Note: This is a pay site.
Meyers Orts www.meyersgaz.org
Association for Computer (German) Genealogy www.compgen.de
Emslander Emigration www.emslanders.com
Note: All of these sites have an English language option. Most are free. Now you've got your research plan for the colder days ahead.
