This book fills a crucial gap in the self-help German research literature. It clearly explains how the various spellings of German surnames and place names occur, historical notes on spelling and grammar, examples of vowel and consonant changes among German dialect regions, and shows changes from Europe to North America. Special features include sample names, illustrations from genuine vital records, and a "trouble-shooting chart." (88pp. illus. index. GRT Pub., 2000.)
