Description Information

For Genealogists Researching Families of German Heritage, 2nd edition.

The Genealogist's Guide to Fraktur introduces eighteenth and nineteenth century Pennsylvania-German illuminated manuscripts, known as "fraktur," to genealogists researching German heritage. Fraktur (the word is singular and plural) were made in America for families of German-speaking ancestry. Because most fraktur contain genealogically significant data, they are highly relevant to family historians. . . . The language barrier is a key reason genealogists fail to investigate fraktur, most of which are written in German.  The Guide should ease concern about understanding the German found on fraktur." - Corinne Earnest, from the Forward.
