Re: 1809 Baden and Palatinate Name Adoption Lists #germany #names

FamilySearch actually has a huge amount of name adoption lists from western Germany but they often have the wrong name. For instance there is a slew of collections saying “Matrikel 1808” but they’re actually name adoption lists. Also, for many of the record sets that are identified as adoption lists, they often include many more towns than mentioned (eg a whole region instead of just a town). See here for example of different sets: https://www.familysearch.org/search/catalog/results?count=20&query=%2Bkeywords%3AJud*%20%2Bkeywords%3Anamen*%20%2Bavailability%3AOnline
