- German Version
- Geogen is the short form for "geographical genealogy" which means location
based ancester research. On this website you can create maps which show the distribution
of surnames in Germany and Austria. Significant concentrations can point to a local root of the
family or of the family name.
- Enter your surname in the upper input field and klick the »Research«
button. German special characters (ä, ö, ü and ß) are are distinct
letters. This means you must look for Mueller and Müller in separate searches.
- The research results stay in server RAM for a few minutes and can only be accessed
with a cookie that has been sent to your computer. Only the last request is stored.
You cannot navigate back to older researches with your browser buttons.
