German Genealogy Research in Pomerania - With Specific Examples of Kreis Schlawe Research; By Donna Schilling; May 2017, 156 pages; 8.5x11; Soft Cover, Perfect Bound; ISBN: 978-1-62859-094-4; Item #: FR0720
Were your ancestors from Pomerania? Pommern was part of Germany prior to World War II. Today, the area lies in two countries. This book is written to help guide researchers who wish to research their ancestors who lived in what is now Northeastern Germany and Northwestern Poland. Suggestions on how to access the records of the area are given. Genealogical research in this area can be a most difficult task, but nevertheless fascinating and rewarding, just as it has been for the author and her family.
The author's family was from Kreis Schlawe, located at the Northeastern tip of what was Pomerania, close to Danzig on the beautiful Baltic Sea. Kreis Schlawe serves as an example of how to find more family history information on this part of what was Germany. Although much of the information is specific to Kreis Schlawe, the same research concepts and the guidelines found within the book apply to any research done within this area.
