FINDING GERMAN MILITARY RECORDS

Lind Street Research Publishes a New Guide for finding German Military Records for the former Kingdom of Hanover

INVERNESS, ILLINOIS, August 1, 2014--Teresa Steinkamp McMillin, Certified Genealogist and German research expert, is proud to announce the publication of Guide to Hanover Military Records, 1514-1866 on Microfilm at the Family History Library. Military records for the former Kingdom of Hanover in Germany can include a soldier's date and place of birth, his father's name, and widows' pensions. This publication is the only English-language guide to this gold mine of information for genealogists. With this guide, a researcher can quickly determine all available records for a regiment and time period and know where to find them in the Family History Library's (FHL) microfilm holdings in Salt Lake City, Utah.

The records in this collection span 130 rolls of FHL microfilm and go beyond simply listing names of soldiers. In addition to the typical details in the muster rolls, transfers to and from other companies provide clues to additional muster rolls to review. The many other types of records in this collection include regimental journals, pension data, marriage consents, field church books, and even horse muster rolls, including physical descriptions of the horses and the names of the soldiers who rode them, and much, much more.

Easy to use, this guide is organized chronologically and includes brief historical overviews at the beginning of each major section. The book explains the history of the former Kingdom of Hanover and includes a detailed explanation of how to use this guide, demonstrated with examples. This guide book is a must-have for anyone researching ancestors from the former Kingdom of Hanover in Germany.
