==== GENWIKI ====
The GenWiki , or genealogical Wiki, is the main collection of information pages. It is fully searchable and includes various types of articles. Many locality pages were generated automatically in conjunction with the GOV, and may be empty. Filled-in pages often provide helpful details and links to other resources. Many articles are very time-and jurisdiction -specific. Disambiguation pages (Example: “Hessen: Begriffserklärung” [=definition of terms] ) allow easier access to the specific page(s) needed.
The GenWiki also includes pages about record types, laws, occupations, historical terms, instructions for using resources, and anything else that may be of interest to the family historian. For instance, a search for “Datenschutz” (rights to privacy) bring up a page that summarizes the meaning as it pertains to genealogists, along with links to more detailed articles.
Various lists, for example historical occupations, have been integrated into the GenWiki. A search for “Euler” brings up the definition: "occupation", and the modern word: "Töpfer " (potter), along with a link to the source database. ===== Locality template ===== Locality entries follow a standard template which may contain any of the following sections: Inhaltsverzeichnis - table of contents<br>1 Einleitung - Introfuction<br>1.1 Allgemeine Information- general information<br>2 Politische Einteilung - political jurisdictions<br>2.1 Gemeinden Wohnplätze Vorwerke ...- communities, residential areas, suburbs...<br>3 Kirchliche Einteilung church jurisdictions<br>3.1 Evangelische Kirchen - Evangelical churches<br>3.2 Katholische Kirchen - Catholic churches<br>4 Geschichte - history<br>5 Genealogische und historische Quellen - genealogical and historical sources<br>5.1 Kirchenbücher - parish registers<br>5.2 Zivilstandsregister - civil registration records<br>5.3 Andere Quellen - other sources<br>5.3.1 LDS/FHC - points to microfilmed source material available through FamilySearch Centers<br>5.3.2 Grundakten und -bücher - land records and -books<br>5.3.3 Adreßbücher - addess books<br>6 Archive und Bibliotheken - archives and libraries<br>6.1 Archive - Archives<br>6.1.1 Bestände in Polen - record holdings in Poland<br>6.2 Bibliotheken - libraries<br>7 Weblinks&nbsp;<br>7.1 Offizielle Webseiten der Stadt/Gemeinde - official Web site of the town/community<br>7.2 Genealogische Webseiten zum Ort - genealogical Web pages regarding this locality<br>7.3 Weitere Webseiten zum Ort - additional Web pages regarding this locality<br>8 Kontakte - contacts&nbsp;<br>8.1 Forscherkontakte in FOKO - research contacts in the FOKO (research contacts) database<br>9 Private Informationsquellen- und Suchhilfeangebote - private qources of information and offers to help search<br>10 Zufallsfunde - incidental findings<br>11 Daten aus dem genealogischen Ortsverzeichnis - data grom the genealogical gazetteer (GOV)<br>
