REVIEWS OF KATHERINE'S ARTICLES: "Katherine's tips on how to translate old German script has been invaluable to my family research. Using her suggestions I have been able to decipher birth and death records from my great-great grandfather's family in Austria! From helpful websites to playing 'hangman', the suggestions she presents have expanded my family research capabilities not only in German, but with other languages as well!" - D. Thalner "Katherine's tips on deciphering German script has handed me the key to unlocking documents from my past. Through her tips on interchanging letters, I realized that the death certificate I thought was for my great uncle Karl was actually that of a more distant relative called Paul. The two names look almost identical in the German handwritten script! Thanks to Katherine, I stopped following the wrong branch of the family tree." - C. Thornthwaite "Not being able to read, translate or write in Old German, I found Katherine's tips helpful in finding which words were most often used in old German documents. The clues as how to tell similar letters apart helped me tremendously." - G. Scholl "The author's writing style makes it easy to understand and use her tricks and tips. Her articles are not about what she can do, but what anybody can do." - G. Haas "The articles have been an excellent resource in helping me apply the author's knowledge of German surname consonant variations in my German genealogy research." - L. Erdman "Katherine Schober's skill at translation of German script was very helpful for me as a professional genealogist working through German church information for my clients. Her writings on how to decipher German records have been a valuable resource as I review German birth and marriage records from the 19th century." - Rettammel Genealogy Service LLC… (mer)

Tips and Tricks is a compilation of Schober’s most popular blog posts and articles on deciphering German documents, and the idea is to provide the reader with the tools they’ll need “to try deciphering [German documents] on [their] own, working out the puzzle of the individual letters and feeling the sense of excitement and pride that comes with being able to read a previously illegible word.” The book is divided into eleven easy-to-read-and-navigate chapters that I can see myself referencing again and again with each new German record that I come across in my search. There’s a chapter on deciphering look-alike letters in German handwriting; one on identifying typical spelling mistakes; and another on common ancestral occupations in their written form.

Have you found a German marriage certificate, but don’t know how to interpret its format? There’s a chapter for that. Need to understand the abbreviations you’re seeing? Found a word that isn’t in the dictionary? Or worse, found a Latin word hidden among the German text? There are chapters for that, too. My favorite, though, is chapter eleven, “Practice Makes Perfect;” Schober provides a list of “real-life” examples of handwritten German words and phrases for the reader to practice deciphering, and she offers an answer key at the end. Tips and Tricks is the perfect resource for the family historian who is just starting out with German records–it’s brief and concise and to-the-point–as well as the long-time genealogist who needs to brush up on their skills.
