Determining the Location of a Civil Registration Office
== Determining the Location of a Civil Registration Office ==
Research your town name in [http://www.meyersgaz.org '''MeyersGaz.org'''] to find the location of the registry office (''Standesamt''). It is indicated by the abbreviation '''"StdA"'''. <span style="color:DarkViolet">''''This is the Standesamt location you will use when searching for civil registration records anywhere in the FamilySearch catalog and collections.'''</span><br>
'''However, some of the offices were merged in 1970's, so the record location might be different than that listed in MeyersGaz.'''
:*Follow the same instructions above.
:*The infobox with the website will appear directly on a this page.
