The German Digital Library has been created to allow viewers to access Germany’s cultural heritage from sources in almost 2,000 cultural and academic institutions in that country. It is intended to be a “single access point to millions of books, paintings, films, museum objects and archival records” for researchers worldwide.
Visit http://www.dw.de/germanys-cultural-heritage-goes-digital/a-16424664 and click on the toolbar at the top, which offers links to Top Stories, Media Center, Program, and Learn German.
The Top Stories links to German history include interesting articles on German burials at Flanders Fields and a prison where RAF members were imprisoned and later found dead.
Anyone with German roots will probably find this website interesting — and informative.
Queries, as well as a general exchange of genealogical material that readers would like to share, will be printed in the column for free. Contact Joan Griffis by e-mailing JBGriffis@aol.com
