Where to get help with German Genealogy translations

Doug asked:
Who can help me find information on relatives that lived in Germany. I have names and addresses but need help. Where to write and interpret German.

Olive Tree Answer: Hello Doug, FamilySearch.org has a German Genealogical Word List. You might also want to try The German Letter Writing Guide and a German to English translation service I've never used this service and am just providing a suggestion, not a recommendation of their work.

  1. I can try to help you, if you would like. I am not a professional genealogist but I am and American, fluent in German and live on the border, on the Swiss side. I will not charge you anything, since I am not a professional, but have traced my family back to the 1500's.
