Finding Aids For German Records for Important Details
====Cultural Regions====
Germany has many "cultural regions" and "geographical landscapes", smaller, informal areas that were not political entities, for example, "The Black Forest" or "Frisia". Your ancestors might have left records or family traditions that they were from one of these areas. This list of [http://wiki-de.genealogy.net/Kategorie:Landschaft '''"landscapes" by GenWiki'''] can help you identify these regions. Once you know that the information is a cultural region not a town, you will know that you need to search further to narrow down your ancestors' town.
==Ask the Community==
[https://community.familysearch.org/s/group/0F93A000000LhYOSA0/germany-genealogy-research '''The Germany Genealogy Research Group'''] is a community of volunteers with experience in German research. You can post questions on their website. They can assist you with any of the processes for tracking down these details.
