There is a german site: http://gedbas.genealogy.net/index.jsp where german researchers upload their family trees.
Try entering your name(s) here and go through the results. Sometimes a name will jog memories

Thanks for the tip Bob, I put a name in, a tree popped up and i emailed the contributor & it turns out we are 3rd cousins living on opposite ends of the globe...Amazing hey!!

Hi all, in looking for my husband's family  from Bremen I found this page very helpful ;

http://www.passengerlists.de/

Look under 'Register of Passports'...and search by surname...try different spellings too..

Hope it helps, Gillian

Hmmmm ... the forum is OK (http://forum.genealogy.net/index.php)
but GEDBAS, which is on the same server isn't.

Just keep trying, it will probably be back soon :)

I found the site worked if you take off the index.php :)

I have found some helpful links through these

Right !  The programmer has changed the site language, so .php doesn't work anymore.

As Linda says, just use:  http://gedbas.genealogy.net/

Nice link :) This site is a collection of links for german geneaolgy. There are some general information pages, but most of the links are for german immigrants in USA.  Some of the links are to other web pages, some are to PDF files (hover with the mouse over the link, and you can see .pdf at the end of the address).

At the bottom othe page are links to ships lists. These are not working.
The links are all to a genealogical society in Bremen, Germany called "Die Maus"
http://db.genealogy.net/maus/gate/passagen.php?schiff=Ansgir&lang=en
(one of their "specialities" is collecting lists of passengers emigrating from from Bremen)

"Die Maus" is still on the genealogy.net server, but with a different address:
http://db.genealogy.net/vereine/index.php?verein=maus
and the ships lists are here:
http://www.genealogy.net/vereine/maus/auswanderung/index_en.html

German BMD Records:

The only BMD records I know of are on the German BDM exchange:
Quote from: sharing useful links...
e.g. Germany: http://iigs.rootsweb.com/bdm/germany/index.html


Otherwise, if you are lucky enough to have ancestors from these particular places,
there are Ortsfamilienbücher (Local Heritage Books) which give personal info.
Check out your luck here: http://www.online-ofb.de/index.html


  Unfortunately Bob these links come back with a 'nicht gefunden'.

   Many thanks.   Hopefully my wife Ilse who is from Berlin but was evacuated to an Oma in Schlesien during the war, will strike lucky.
