Einstieg für InteressierteGetting started for interested parties

The first question of many interested parties is whether their own name has already been recorded in the database of the family chronicle. To do this, you should first check the name register whether you or your close relatives have been included in the index.
If you do not find any proof, you should check in the location register whether family members were already registered in a certain region or a specific location. And - with a bit of luck - a family tree has already been created, in which your ancestors and / or relatives have been admitted.

Your family has not yet been included in this family chronicle?   -   Then you can send your contributions at any time on the attached questionnaire. All family data are provided according to the attached data protection declaration.

And what do you get from it?   -   All data provided by you are recorded in the names and location registers and, if the data density is high, are also converted into family trees. All our services are free of charge for the sender. This also includes the transmission of a free pedigree in PDF format.
