Ernest Thode – Ernest Thode is the author of A Genealogist’s Guide to Discovering Your Germanic Ancestors, Address Book for German Genealogy, and the German-English Genealogical Dictionary. Ernest earned a Bachelor of Arts in German and English from Purdue, and a Master’s degree in German from Stanford. He is an expert on German and German-American genealogy, with particular expertise in the subject of translation.

This book is designed for the family researcher who has little or no knowledge of German but who nevertheless needs to make a translation of German-language documents. The dictionary covers thousands of German terms and defines them in single words or brief phrases. All words, symbols, and abbreviations in the dictionary were chosen on the basis of their association with genealogy, having been noted in church records, civil registration records, family correspondence, genealogical journals, ships' passenger lists, and emigration records. Among the many categories of entries included in the dictionary are family relationships, days of the week, map terms, legal terms, cardinal and ordinary numbers, roman numerals, signs of the zodiac, coins, liquid and dry measures, measures of length, place names, historical territories, geographical terms, occupations, titles, military ranks, types of taxes, illnesses, calendar days, male and female given names, heraldry, abbreviations, books of the Bible, and common genealogical words from Danish, Dutch, French, Latin, and Polish. In conjunction with a standard German-English dictionary, the user of this work should be able to make a word-by-word translation of any German document and understand it.
  • I am doing translation work for a family website. Although I am a native German, I bought this book in the hope that it would provide oldfashioned, genealogical and historical terms and titles with which I am not familiar and which are not contained in modern dictionaries. From the description on your website I even mentioned it to some of my fellow translators, offering to test it before recommending it.

    However, I cannot recommend it. I found very few of the terms I was looking for, and I discovered some blatant mistakes. Mr. Thode should have had a German person proofread his work in order to avoid things like confusing diarrhea with compulsion (sic!), dishonest with illegitimate, cupboard with liquor service. These are only three of the mistakes which I found in one hour, and there are probably dozens more. Instead of giving us more legitimate terms, Mr. Thode wastes valuable space on common Christian names which everybody knows.

    I am very disappointed.

  • Works better than Google Translate. Not as fast, but better translations. And you can usually figure out the word with the first few letters. Google Translate won't help you if you misspelled it. This book will.

  • This is a wonderful dictionary

  • This book has been an invaluable resource. I don't speak German and I don't know what I would have done without this book. I highly recommend it to anyone researching their German ancestry who has to read old documents.

  • It has been a great help with German words that I have found in my genealogical researching of my family.

  • I do Genealogy and have trouble deciphering German documents. This book even shows how the letters of the alphabet look when written (script) and printed in documents or books.

  • A very useful source for the genealogist. In addition to many obsolete German legal terms it includes translations of many Latin phrases which appear in old German documents. I've been translating many German mortgage papers from the 1840's to 60's and I've been using it a great deal. Highly recommended.

  • This dictionary is an absolute necessity for any family history researcher who has ancestors in Germany and doesn't read german. It has the necessary words, numbers, dates, and handwriting examples to make translating German documents not only possible but manageable. I highly recommend it.
