Thanks to a generous gift from volunteer genealogy assistant and library board member Robert Bauer, the library has just added thirteen additional volumes of the Map Guide to German Parish Registers series to our genealogy shelves. We now own volumes 1-21, which brings us current with all available volumes in the series to date.
The Map Guides are useful for helping researchers of German lines determine where parish boundaries existed, and for locating parish records. LDS Family History Library film numbers are provided for each parish where records have been filmed.
The areas covered by the newly added volumes are these: Bavaria, including Niederbayern, Oberbayern, Oberpfalz, Oberfranken, Schawben and Mittelfranken; Rhineland; Hessen-Nassau; and the Palatinate. The call number for the Map Guide to German Parish Registers is MICH R929.1072 HAN.
