Ancestry.com Goes Deutsch
7/1/2007
The Generations Network makes its first foreign-language site a German one.

More Americans can claim German heritage than any other variety, so it's fitting the Generations Network <thegenerationsnetwork.com> made its first foreign-language site a German one.

The company has stocked Ancestry.de <ancestry.de> with German port and census records bearing more than 6 million names. Most notable are the Hamburg passenger lists, containing records of more than 5 million people who sailed from that port between 1850 and 1934. The Hamburg lists also are part of Ancestry.com's <Ancestry.com > $155-40-per-year US Deluxe records collection; all the German records are available in the $299.40-per-year World Deluxe subscription. Ancestry.de membership costs 9.95 euros for a 14-day subscription that allows l0 record views per day.
