Die Vorfahren Online Indices
Die Pommerschen Leute usually contains ten pages with articles related to Pomeranian history, geography, culture and genealogical resources. It also contains Die Vorfahren, ten pages of genealogical information submitted by our subscribers (see side column). Our subscribers are generally people in the United States whose ancestors immigrated from Pomerania and most information in Die Vorfahren reflects this heritage. Publication in Die Vorfahren, however, is open to any subscriber with Pomeranian ancestry.
Die Vorfahren has been publishing genealogical information for almost 25 years. To help people locate information related to their ancestors, we maintain two online indices to the items published in Die Vorfahren: a full name index and a place name index.
The Full Name index includes the full name of every individual that occurs in Die Vorfahren items along with the item number in which the name occurred and the identification number of the subscriber who submitted the information. Jerry Dalum saw the need for such an index not long after Myron Gruenwald founded the publication and has maintained the index every since. You can access the full name index at www.pomeranianews.org/dv/persons/indexdv.html
The Place Name index includes the name of every location in Pomerania that occurs in Die Vorfahren items along with the identification number of the subscriber who submitted the information. Myron started this index because of his interest in migration patterns of Pomeranians who immigrated to the United States and maintained it untill his death. It is now maintained by George Unrine. You can access the place name index at www.pomeranianews.org/dv/places/dvstadt.html
