German Genealogy Group

The German Genealogy Group's website is the perfect complement to that of the Italian Genealogical Group. In fact, the two groups have worked together on several important New York databases, like New York City Death Records, 1891-1948, and New York City Marriage Records. The German Group's website has extra features, like a contact list for German surname researchers, and baptism, marriage, communion, and burial records from five New York churches with German membership. As these records are part of the "invisible web" unindexed by search engines like Google, they are an easily overlooked and underappreciated resource.
