While not directly linked to genealogy, the Berlin Landesarchiv website,
is a potentially valuable public source of information
on family members you may or may not have known. Easy to use, you simply
search by family name and you will see the nature of each claim, e.g. for
property, or furs or securities, and who submitted the claim. The specifics
of the claims are not given but you may request such information at
info@.... There is a charge for the relevant
documents presumably varying depending on the size of each file.
