Finding our German ancestors' European origins may be difficult, but is usually possible. What tools will you need? Joseph Lieby will help you trace your ancestors using tools and techniques based on what you know about them. Knowing where our German ancestors lived in Europe, and when they came to America, should be the goal of anyone interested in their family history. Finding out when they came can usually be determined using research tools we already know. Their European origins may be more difficult to find, but is usually possible using those same tools. Tracing our German speaking ancestors beyond that will call for a new set of research tools that need to be acquired, including some German vocabulary, ability to decipher German script, and a little about German geography.
