     The standard series of books on German nobility is the Gotha
     series, which has appeared under various titles since the late
     18th century.  Look in your library catalog for a title similar
     to _Gothaisches genealogisches Taschenbuch der adeligen H"auser_
     or _Genealogisches Handbuch des Adels_.  The latter has an online
     surname index at <http://www.rootsweb.com/~autwgw/sgi/index.htm>

     Herbert Stoyan has an excellent online resource for noble
     genealogy called WW-Person at
       <http://www8.informatik.uni-erlangen.de/html/ww-person.html>
     Paul Theroff has an online Gotha at
       <http://pages.prodigy.net/ptheroff/gotha/gotha.htm>

     Please be advised, however, that stories of noble relations in
     American families are often exaggerated.
