I am trying to locate records of people who lived in Berlin during the
period >from 1880 to 1939, including people whose residence there was
Does anyone know if Berlin authorities maintained family registers
during this period? Would a person who moved to or within Berlin have
been obligated to register with the police? If such records were created,
did they survive the war? Does anyone know where they are currently housed?
Are they online?
