DILIBRA - Genealogy In Germany
Since 2009 we buy original historical documents, old photographs and geographical maps for your own research into your genealogy and origins. Thanks to selected sponsors our smart collection is growing and growing. Each piece is a unique! They are too rare and important as to be abandoned. As a result, we are continually purchasing, digitizing and publishing. In this way we are making our small contribution to preserving history. That is our mission. Meanwhile our archive stores a substantial inventory of documents that are of relevance to the work of genealogy researchers, historians and regional ethnographers. Our collection of ancestors passports and family books has become also the biggest public collection of this kind in the world. The family trees, ancestral lines and personal data provided by our publications can help to overcome genealogical dead-ends. Some of our scans contain personal data and events which once written down in today still missing churchbooks or civil registers.
