==House Books [Hausbücher]==
A few cities and towns have house books [Hausbücher] that list the owners of each house, their occupations and years of residence, and sometimes other residents of the house. Biographical sketches and genealogies are sometimes included. The following is an example of this kind of record:
*''Bauern und Hausbesitzer mit ihren Vorfahren in den 55 Dörfern des Kreises Peine (Farmers and house owners with their ancestors in the 55 villages of the Peine District [Hannover]).''Goslar, Germany: Blut und Boden, 1938. (FHL book 943B4q v. 25; film 924,909 item 3.)
The Family History Library has only a few of these records, and only people wealthy enough to own property are likely to be listed in them. The following bibliography is arranged by both author and place:
*Spruth, Herbert. ''Die Hausmarke: Wesen und Bibliographie (The nature of house marks with their bibliography)''. Neustadt/Aisch, Germany: Degener,1965. (FHL book 943 B4a number 4.)
These records are most often found in the Place Search of the FamilySearch Catalog under:
