German Ancestry

Learn more about your genealogy, and your German ancestry as well, as you begin your family search with the following steps:

  • Be aware of, and record the genealogical knowledge that you already possess
  • Talk with knowledgeable relatives regarding the ancestors that you are currently researching

Connect, Collaborate and Learn:
Even if you do not have access to relatives, or your relatives know little about your common ancestors, OneGreatFamily offers a simple solution to help you find more information regarding your German ancestry.

The solution is collaboration.

With OneGreatFamily, members have the opportunity to collaborate with thousands of other OneGreatFamily members who submit names from over 80 countries worldwide. Finding your German ancestry via personal research is not nearly as effective as collaborating with thousands of people who are researching a common family tree.

How Does it Work?

  1. Members contribute their own family tree information
  2. OneGreatFamily searches and sifts through names for genealogy connections
  3. Members review the suggested 'genealogical matches' and approve them when desired
  4. Then, members sit back and relax while OneGreatFamily continues to review its database and expand the original-online family tree

OneGreatFamily Works for You
With OneGreatFamily, you simply enter the genealogical information that you have already, and then OneGreatFamily will search its database, and sift through names in order to find connections which match your family tree chart.

With OneGreatFamily, you do not have to enter query after query and sift through thousands of names which are not likely to be related to your search. OneGreatFamily continually reviews its database and provides accurate search results.
