Getting started ....

  • Hello Members,

    We wish you every success in your Family History research.

    We, in this forum, want to do our best to help you, so please read read the topics in this section, and abide by the tips and suggestions there.

    If you need further help, please contact a moderator. We will try to help you as efficiently and as fast as possible.

    We have many helpful, friendly members here who are willing to help.
    but some them can read and write english better than others. So to help others to help you,
    the moderators may edit some of your posts, providing translations of some words and phrases.
    And if our members answer your posts in german, then we will try to provide a translation for you ( a.s.a.p. :) )

    You will see in your profile that you can set the visible postings ("Show content in the following languages") to just english, just german, or both.

    We strongly recommend that you show both languages.
    If you only show english postings, then some german words in your posting may result in the forum softwareposts not recognising your posting (or the replies to it) as 'english' and then you will miss out on possible information.

    Good Luck,
    The Team

    P.S. If you want to practice your german, then have a go :)
    The general style of communication here is the informal 'Du' and not the more formal 'Sie'.
