     The German central government conducted censuses in 1871, every five
     years from 1875 to 1910, 1919, 1925, 1933, 1935 (Saar), and 1939.
     West Germany had censuses in 1946, 1950, 1961, 1970, and 1987.  East
     Germany had censuses in 1945, 1946, 1964, 1971, and 1981.  Except
     for the 1939 census, these censuses are not useful for genealogical
     purposes; available data are of a statistical nature only.

     Each of the states conducted their own censuses at other times.
     Some of these censuses are available via your local LDS FHC and
     are quite useful genealogically.

     The central German census authority can tell you if certain
     censuses exist and where they can be found:
              Statistisches Bundesamt
              Gustav Stresemann Ring 11
              Postfach 5528
              65189 Wiesbaden
