Dear GerSIGers,

I noticed that with the digitization of many of the German civil
records more and more posts are being made to ViewMate asking for
assistance with and translations of such records.

In order to help with the pre-printed portions of these birth,
marriage and death records I have created English translations for
these forms and put them on Dropbox (thanks for the suggestion, Roger

These documents are in Word (i.e. .docx) format as well as in .PDF
format. Each has an image of a real record attached to it with the
respective translations underneath (numbered, to make it easier to see
what is what).

NOTE: This will not help with the handwritten parts but at least it
can provide the context for those, I hope.

The Dropbox link is:

If you see mistakes etc. please let me know privately.

Best regards, Irene Peters, Berlin, Germany -
