Topic: Working with Marginal Notes on German Civil Records

Marriage, death, and birth records often contain marginal notes that provide additional information you would not find otherwise. These notes can provide additional clues about the person and even family members. They are definitely a shortcut in your research that you should not do without! In this presentation, you will learn how to use these marginal notes in your research to gain deeper insights into your ancestor's life story.
