Moving, moving, moving! Migration Patterns within Germany (Intermediate)

Despite their reputation for being rooted to their localities, Germans do have a history of migration within their own country, especially after the onset of industrialization in the mid-19th century. In this presentation, we will explore the various patterns of internal migration, and offer guidance on how to navigate these movements to aid in your search for ancestors.

Hochzeitsbild Justus Hildegard Stange Kopie.JPG

"When I asked Ursula Krause to do research for me into my German grandparents, I expected birth, marriage and death records for both my grandfather's and grandmother's sides of the family. What I got was those and more. Photos of the village and the church where my family worshipped. The unit history of my grandfather's World War I service. Leads to possible living cousins. And a candid cost-conscious appraisal of where research should be focused for the most benefit. In short, I got a thoroughly professional job from a thorough professional I wouldn't hesitate to recommend."
