496 pages; Since its founding in 1834 the New-Yorker Staats-Zeitung has been the principal newspaper of New York City's German-speaking community. Although the paper has long been available on microfilm, it has been little used by genealogists. In its pages, however, are thousands of marriage and death notices which give such vital information as places of origin in Europe, married women's maiden names, and names of relatives. The earliest surviving issues of the Staats-Zeitung, between 1836 and 1870, contain some 10,600 death notices, 1,500 marriage notices, and 50 birth notices. Frank Biebel has indexed all these notices, the marriages by bride and groom, and the deaths by both decedents and non-decedents. He has also indexed notices from several smaller German-language papers that survive. His indexes are meticulously annotated to give the researcher some idea of the information each notice may contain. After finding an index entry the researcher can view the original newspaper on film at the New York Public Library. Bookseller Inventory #
