Genealogy and ancestry (or family history as it is sometimes called) is the study of families and the tracing of their lineages and history. Genealogists use historical records, documents, church-books and other methods to obtain data on a family and demonstrate kinship and pedigrees of its members. Other approaches are to determine the descendants or the name-line of a historical person (i.e. proband). The latter is the proper method to get quickly back in time until the beginning of record-keeping. Please note that church books have certain terms of data protection: Baptisms 120 years, marriages and deaths 100 years. Please understand that it is not possible to obtain data on individuals, who were born after 1894 (who married or died after 1914).
Here are some examples of the handwritten documents kept in the Diözesanarchiv Würzburg. Can you read them?
