      Wordgenweb.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.
