Great challenge this week from Randy Seaver. Here's what I'm currently reading:
Riemer, Shirley J., Roger P. Minert, and Jennifer A. Anderson. The German Research Companion. Sacramento, Calif: Lorelei Press, 2010.
This third edition of the The German Research Companion is filled with possibilities for researching German family history. Note the addition of email addresses, recently published books and other aids, website addresses (complete with directions for managing some of them), as well as helpful comments concerning the use of resources.
I heard Dr. Minert last Saturday at the Santa Barbara spring seminar and this is reinforcing his lectures. I have some modest hopes about my Austrians at this point.
