Please Note:
Although the documents 'Information Sheet', 'Constitution' and 'Application for Membership' are offered as English translations of the original German documents on our homepage and although most of our members are able to communicate with you in English, we are not able to provide English versions of our genealogical documents and publications as these are only written and published in German.
