WHAT IS THE
The goal of the German Geschlechterbuch is to help German families by publishing the research master list and the family crest. Many of the various volumes are grouped by region of origin of the former German Empire - eg, "Westfälisches" or "Silesian" Geschlechterbuch - so that a search can be made about the origin of ancestors from a particular region.
The "Hamburg Geschlechterbuch with it's seventeen volumes (2007) is part of the German Geschlechterbuch and is a genealogical self-contained work, as it can show no other city and is primarily the institution of cultural and economic developments of the city-state, The Hanseatic League.
The German Geschlechterbuch was published from 1889 to 1943 under the title Genealogical Handbook of bourgeois families and contained 119 volumes, published by genealogist Bernhard Koerner and CA Starke Verlag until the year 1943 in Gorlitz. More than 4,000 families are treated. After a break of 12 years, the series was published again starting in 1956 with band 120 under the name "German Geschlechterbuch. The last and 219th volume was published in 2007.
