PDF eBook: Map Guide to German Parish Registers - Kingdom of Bavaria X - Gazetteer & Master Index to Volumes 13-22,by Kevan Hansen, 256 pp., Volume 23, Item #FR0045-PDF, ISBN: 978-1-933194-35-6, Library of Congress Control Number: 2007939390.
Volume 23 of the German Map Guide series was published in November 2008. Written in English by Kevan Hansen, the volume is an index to all the towns found in Bavaria I-IX, as well as those listed in the Pfalz section (German Map Guide Volume 13). This volume gives the name of the town, and the Bavarian province in which the town is found, as well as the book and page number(s) where data on that town can be located. This is the twenty-third volume of a series covering all of Germany. The production of the series is still ongoing. Note that Bavaria is covered in its entirety in nine volumes, plus this index that also covers the Pfalz, found in Rhineland III, Volume 13. Even the smallest places are listed in this index and series - some with a population of one person! These places are as of about 1870. If the place existed prior to that date, there is a good chance it will be listed. If the place was named after that date, the chances drop. Researched and compiled from the text and footnotes of many old gazetteers and maps, this volume is the most complete Bavarian gazetteer ever compiled and can act as a stand-alone gazetteer of Bavaria, with or without the rest of the German Map Guide series.
