PDF eBook: Map Guide to German Parish Registers - Vol. 43 – Kingdom of Prussia, Province of Brandenburg III, City of Berlin, by Kevan Hansen, 207 pp., Item #FR0085-PDF, ISBN: 978-1-933194-84-4, Library of Congress Control Number: 2011937661.
Published by Family Roots Publishing Company, Volume 43 of the German Map Guide series was published in June 2013. This volume covers just the city of Berlin. This book also includes a master index to Volumes 41 through 43, which covers all of Brandenburg. Written in English by Kevan Hansen, the volume was principally written to help family historians resolve where their family may have gone to church – and left vital records behind that may be seen today. This is the forty-third of a series covering all of Germany. The series is still in production. In many cases, even the smallest places are listed in this 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.
This volume of the series does the following:
- Identifies the parish where an ancestor worshipped based on where they lived - to the street.
- Gives the FHL microfilm number for the family's parish records.
- Visually identifies church parishes for Lutherans & Catholics in each district.
- Identifies adjoining parishes in case an ancestor attended an alternate parish.
- Aids in area searches, particularly across the district or regional borders.
- Provides visual identification of search areas in which to look for a family.
- Helps in determining the proximity of one area to another.
- Aids in determining reasonable distances of travel from one area to another.
- Identifies archives, repositories, and other resources.
- Aids in identification of the location of minority religions.
