This volume covers 4,200 places found in Rhineland III Trier & the Pfalz (Palatinate). The Rhineland Trier portion of the book includes 2,505 places, while the Bavarian Province of the Pfalz includes 1,695 places. Volume 13 of the German Map Guide series was published in June 2007. Written in English by Kevan Hansen, the volume, listing 4,200 places, was principally written to help family historians resolve where their family may have gone to church - and left vital records behind that may be seen today (many available on Family History Library microfilm). This is the 13th of a series of 45 volumes, covering all of Germany. The series is ongoing. Note that Rhineland in its entirety is covered in 3 volumes. The Pfalz (Palatinate) is included in this volume with Rhineland, since its geographic location is such that it made more sense to include it with Rhineland than Bavaria. Even the smallest places are listed in this series - some with as little population as one person! These places are as of about 1870. If the place existed prior to that date, it will most likely be listed. Each volume of the series does the following: Identifies the parish where an ancestor worshipped based on where they lived. Gives the FHL microfilm number for the family's parish records. Identifies nearly every city, town, and place that included residents. Visually identifies church parishes for Lutherans & Catholics in each district. Identifies adjoining parishes in case an ancestor attended an alternate parish. Aids in area searches, particularly across district or regional borders. Provides visual identification of search areas in which to look for a family. Helps in determining proximity of one area to another. Aids in determining reasonable distances of travel from one area to another. Identifies population centers in each parish. Identifies archives, repositories, and other resources. Aids in identification of the location of minority religions.
