Meyers Gazetteer

The Meyers Gazetteer is the most important of all German gazetteers. The goal of the Meyer’s compilers was to list every place name in the German Empire (1871-1918). It gives the location, i.e. the state and other jurisdictions, where the civil registry office was and parishes if that town had them. It also gives lots of other information about each place.  The Meyers Gazetteer website also includes historical map images from the David Rumsey Map Collection.
