Please add the emails back into the function for asking for help to all members of that community. I have learned a tremendous amount of real-life german script from people's questions as well as situations and geography.
Absolutely. I have made this suggestion myself. The fact that a group of people must have thought email notifications containing recent activity in groups was not needed astounds me.0
I joined this group ten days before the recent change. In the one and only email I received, someone asked a question regarding where to look for records for a specific town. I took that url link and deleted her town and put my town in and I have added 12, yes 12, new direct line ancestors to my tree. I have been looking for them for 38 years and my aunt even went to Germany looking for them many years ago. This one link has changed my life. https://data.matricula-online.eu/en/bestande/ If it hadn't been for that group email, I may never have found them. Please bring back the weekly emails. Thank you.3
A lot of people found the group emails helpful, and people who did not want to receive the emails could change their email preferences in the old Community.
@Deanna Kleymann Hammond, Matricula-Online is one of the best websites out there for German records; it contains tons of Catholic records. The website Archion.de contains tons of Protestant records (that one is subscription-based, however). Please note that there are several blue links to various websites and resources at the top of each research group; for example, at the top of the Germany research group https://community.familysearch.org/en/group/88-germany-genealogy-research you can see links to Archion and Matricula, among other things, and you can scroll sideways (using the cursor at the bottom of the list) to view additional links. I hope you find some more helpful tools there!0
