I refer to church registres where notes about marriages, birth and death were made. I have got those from a geneologic research institute called Europäisches Wappenmuseum. They do not have an own web page, but their address and phone is listed under :
They also informed me about Schuck´s coat of arms, which also supprised me very much. However, they have millions of sources and cross referenes about family names and family history.It is probably the biggest archive in Europe. If anyone of your familiy in Germany is interested in family history it is worth visiting tis institute. It is very impressing how fast they are able to give you allot of information about Schucksduring your visit. In the event anybody would visit the Europäische Wappenmuseum, please do not hesitate to contact me. I live about 100 meters away from the institute. Please mail your private e-mail to me. I could e-mail my phone No to you. I don´t want to publish it here. I´ll be on a business trip to the US for the next two weeks. After this I can contact you again.
