See reader questions & answers on this topic! - Help others by sharing your knowledge
               and de.sci.genealogie?

     The two Usenet newsgroups of interest to German genealogists
     are soc.genealogy.german and de.sci.genealogie.

     If you are trying to understand something, find a resource, get
     advice, or find relatives, post to soc.genealogy.german.

     If you prefer to read German-language postings only, then read
     de.sci.genealogie.

     Soc.genealogy.german is an unmoderated Usenet news group for queries
     and discussion of all matters relating to German genealogy.  
"German"
     here refers to language, and thus explicitly includes German, 
German-
     American, Austrian, Swiss, Alsatian, Luxembourger, Liechtensteiner
     and Eastern European German genealogy.  The newsgroup is available 
at
       <news:soc.genealogy.german>
     and its original charter can be found at
       <http://www.genealogy.net/faqs/cfv>
     When posting, only simple text should be used; MIME, HTML, 
enclosures,
     binaries, and pictures should be avoided.  Commercial postings
     should go to soc.genealogy.marketplace, not soc.genealogy.german.  
New
     posters automagically receive a warm and informative welcome e-mail.

     For those without news access, soc.genealogy.german is mirrored to
     e-mail lists in digest, message, and index mode.  Subscription 
requests
     should be sent to GEN-DE-D-request@rootsweb.com if you want 
individual
     postings combined into circa 32KB digests as MIME attachments 
(normal
     digest mode), to GEN-DE-NMD-request@rootsweb.com if you want the 
32KB
     digests sent as one long message (non-MIME digest mode), to
     GEN-DE-L-request@rootsweb.com if you want messages sent individually
     (mail mode), or to GEN-DE-I-request@rootsweb.com if you want only
     message subject lines in a daily index (index mode).  Put the word
     "subscribe" in the message body, no quotes.  You will receive a
     confirmation and additional instructions.  To unsubscribe, send the
     message "unsubscribe" instead, with no quotes, to the request 
address
     for which you are subscribed, from the account that is subscribed.
     Postings by e-mail (not subscription requests) go to
     GEN-DE-L@rootsweb.com.  See also
       <http://www.genealogy.net/misc/listserv-e.html>

     The gen-de archives from 8 Dec 1995 onwards may be searched online 
at
       <http://searches.rootsweb.com/gen-de.html>
     Postings may also be viewed online in threaded format at
       <http://archiver.rootsweb.com/th/index/GEN-DE/>
     There have been short periods when the gen-de to 
soc.genealogy.german
     mirror has failed, resulting in the existence of a few messages only
     in the newsgroup and others only in the e-mail lists.  Thus you may
     also wish to consult a Usenet archive such as Google.com:
       <soc.genealogy.german">http://groups.google.com/groups?group=soc.genealogy.german>

     Soc.genealogy.surnames.german was an automoderated Usenet newsgroup
     with strict subject line requirements.  It has not functioned since
     22 June 2000.  Its archives are still useful, however.  See
       <http://www.rootsweb.com/~surnames/>

     De.sci.genealogie is an unmoderated German-language-only Usenet
     newsgroup for genealogy and related subjects, regardless of
     geographical region or ethnicity.  Its FAQ may be found at
       <http://www.genealogienetz.de/faqs/dsg-faq.html>
