AHNENBUCH DER DEUTSCHEN FAMILIE

IN AS NEW CONDITION

This 6-1/2 x 9-1/4 inch, 200 page hardcover book was published 1937 by Zentralverlag der NSDAP, Franz Eher Nachf. in Munich. In 1935 the "Gesetz zum Schutze des deutschen Blutes" came into effect, the law that protected the German (Aryan) blood lines from intermingling with, how the Nazis put it, inferior blood of Jews, Gypsies and other "unfit" races. At least every German who applied for an official position in the German government, the military, the education system or a leading position in the German industry had to prove Aryan descent. This had to be traced back about 200 years, preferably longer. This book provided room for entries of the heritage of the husband, followed by the same forms for the wife, each dating back to their great-great-great-parents! In order to get all that information the couple had to go to the registrar's office in their hometown as well as to churches who kept records of their community. It must have been quite a lot of work to gather all the requested information!

The copy that is offered for sale has never been filled out, there are some loose papers with information of ancestors of the family who was the original owner of this book in the 1930s but nothing has ever been entered into the book itself. The book is in as new condition and would be perfect for anyone who wants to document his/her own family history!

there are two fold out charts in a pocket at the end of the book, one for the family tree of the husband and one fo rthe family tree of the wife
