German to English translations [PRO]
German term or phrase:Alle Familiengeschichten (Ortssippenbücher) ersche
Dieser Satz erscheint in einem genealogischen Informationsartikel. Was ist ein Ortssippenbuch und wie ist es am besten ins Englische übersetzt?
Explanation: This is a tough one...these are very weak attempts:
You can translate it literally->
Ortssippenbuch-local kin book
If the term "Ortslexikon" is close, that can be translated as "gazeteer".
The closest thing I could find was that the Mormon church maintains what they call the "Ancestral Record", but to my knowledge, it only includes the members of their church. It is their official record, though.
Sorry I couldn't be more help.
The following URL is for a German-English list of genealogical terms I found, perhaps it might come in handy for other translations.
