Today’s episode of Research Like a Pro is a continuation of our series on tracing 19th century German ancestors. Heidi Mathis is back sharing about what to do next after you find the hometown of your ancestor in Germany. We discuss Archion, the German website for Protestant records and how to find baptismal records there. We also talk about the German mega-site, CompGen.de which can be used to locate German Genealogical Societies, German State Archives, OFBs (town family books), and learn how to research the jurisdictions of the hometown.
