*re: LDS films of German non-Aryan Census 1939 #austria-czech

Hello Genners,

Jonathan found a goldmine for those researching German ancestry. The
Mormons have almost 60 German locality entries of the 1939 minority
census - and 132 films, which basically contained almost Jews only.

The index of localities can be found in film # 1742516. Sudetenland
is included.

The way to find those records is either to use the FHL keyword search
feature with the words " Deutschland Reichssippenamt " or the link below:


Good hunt

Apparently, the Nazis took a census in 1939 of non-Aryans living in Germany,
and this has been filmed by the Mormons. The census information includes all
household members with place and date of birth.
