Genealogical Glossary


Long-time genealogists may forget that they were once beginners, and learning the terms, abbreviations, charts, and methods associated with genealogy was a lot like learning a foreign language. This column is the first of a two-part "glossary" of terms that all genealogists should know. It's not all-inclusive; for terms with multiple definitions, only the definition relevant to genealogy is given. Until you become familiar with the "alphabet soup" of genealogical terms, don't be discouraged if you can't tell if your coming (immigrating), or going (emigrating).

Genealogy Resource Guide



The maxim “know thyself” was well known among the ancient Greeks and to this day people still recite those wise words – especially when searching online for “how-to-genealogy.” Casually known as one’s family history or tree, genealogy is the study of family lineages and defined by the Society of Genealogists as the “…establishment of a Pedigree by extracting evidence, from valid sources, of how one generation is connected to the next.” In addition to helping individuals figure out their roots, genealogy can also offer a more-detailed view of their family’s role in the grand scheme of history.

While many people are motivated by the possibility of discovering that their relatives may have been wealthy or famous, it can be illuminating to learn about one’s own heritage and rewarding to pass that knowledge down to future generations. Genealogical information can bring families closer together, offer a new perspective, and guide future decisions. Best of all, it allows one to… know thyself.

The largest collection of free family history, family tree and genealogy records in the world. is a non-profit service sponsored by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We believe that every person is important and that families are meant to be both sacred and eternal. We encourage all people to find their ancestors and preserve their family histories. To help in this great pursuit, the Church has been actively gathering and preserving genealogical records worldwide for over 100 years.

We have learned that interest in family history is not limited by culture, ethnicity or religious faith. People around the world are innately and intensely interested in their family heritage. Because the Church’s family history efforts are funded by charitable donations, it freely offers its resources to anyone interested in finding their family’s roots.

Online-Katalog der mikroverfilmten Unterlagen der Mormonen
Die Nutzung der Datenbanken auf der Internetseite der Kirche Jesu Christi der Heiligen der Letzten Tage (Mormonen) ist den meisten Internetnutzern sehr vertraut.

Weniger bekannt ist anscheinend die Möglichkeit, online im "Family History Library Catalog", kurz "FHLC" zu stöbern. Es handelt sich um einen Online-Katalog der mikroverfilmten Unterlagen der Kirche Jesu Christi der Heiligen der Letzten Tage. Dabei ist diese Art der Suche nicht schwierig. Wer sich damit auskennt, ist in dieser Hinsicht selbständig und unabhängig, er ist nicht auf fremde Hilfe und auch nicht auf die Öffnungszeiten der Forschungsstellen angewiesen. Natürlich sind die Mitarbeiter in den genealogischen Forschungsstellen der Mormonen bei der Filmauswahl den Forschern behilflich, die diese Hilfe wünschen. Der Online-Katalog ist aber rund um die Uhr verfügbar und solange man ihn befragen will. Weiss man also schon, welche Mikrofilme man bestellen möchte, ist die eigentliche Bestellung dann sehr schnell erledigt.

33. IGI - Deutsches Batchnummern Verzeichnis Verzeichnis der deutschen Batchnummern des IGI von Aufgelistet werden Batchnummern der Zivilstands-, Tauf-, und Heiratsbücher nach Orten geordnet.


Lange hat sich hier nichts mehr getan, leider - wie ich fand. War doch das deutsche Batchnummernverzeichnis immer eine gute Anlaufstelle um bei Familysearch einfacher suchen zu können.

Auf diesen Seiten versuche ich, alle deutschen (besser des heutigen und ehemaligen deutschen Sprachraums) Batchnummern zu sammeln. Die Batchnummern erleichtern Ihnen die Suche nach Personen aus bestimmten Orten oder Regionen auf den Familysearch Seiten (nähere Informationen siehe unter Anleitung).

"IGI" steht für "International Genealogical Index".

Seit einiger Zeit steht dem Familienforscher ein neues Hilfsmittel zur Verfügung. Es handelt sich um von den Mormonen erstellte Kirchenbuchabschriften, die kostenlos im Internet einzusehen sind. Um diese Daten anschauen bzw. herunterladen zu können, muss man vom gesuchten Ort eine Batchnummer (englisch: batch number) in Erfahrung bringen. Dies kann u.U. einige Probleme bereiten, da keine Datenbank dieser Nummern (zumindest online) existiert.
Im nachfolgenden Artikel soll erläutert werden, wie man genealogische Daten mit Hilfe der Batchnummern erhalten kann.

Wie sieht eine Batchnummer aus?

"LDS" steht für "Latter-Day Saints".

Pedigree (W3)

= A line of ancestors; descent; lineage; genealogy; a register or record of a line of ancestors.

Believed to be derived from the French "ped de gru", which meant "crane's foot" (the modern French equivalent is "pied de la grue"). The "crane's foot" is said to resemble the " /|\ " symbol on genealogical trees. It has also been suggested that it comes from "par degrés", the French for "by degrees". A "pedigree" chart records the relationship of families by degrees.

Deutsche in Amerika


Etwa 43 Millionen Amerikaner - also jeder 6. Einwohner - gaben bei der Volkszählung im Jahr 2000 an, deutsche Vorfahren zu haben. Für die Einwanderer der ersten und zweiten Generation war vor allem Integration und Amerikanisierung wichtig; erst spätere Generationen entwickelten ein neues ethnisches Bewußtsein, zeigten Interesse an der eigenen Herkunft und beginnen ihre Familiengeschichte bis zu den europäischen Wurzeln zurückzuverfolgen. Auch immer mehr Deutsche interessieren sich dafür, ob sie vielleicht Verwandte auf der anderen Seite des Atlantiks aufspüren können.
