12319Re: My introduction to German genealogy
- Feb 14, 2009Wordgenweb.org is a great site, but the information in the
German/Prussian province is limited. The site offers to post your
surname research, but the email addy is bad.
I am looking for an interpretation of a source indicated in a German
family tree that cites "elections". What is this source, "elections"?
Thanks for your help.
