Hi,

One question though... Now that I know where to look in these materials, can someone aim me in the direction of where to go about actually finding these materials for the references themselves?

Hi Chris,

Just came across this topic.

Anything on Lt.K.Nagel? I recently purchased a 1914 EK1. On the reverse is engraved Lt. K. Nagel 5.7.16

Many thanks

Regards

Kris

... It is a copy of the index for the 36 volumes of the Reichsarchive history of WW1.

In it are 16 000 names of mainly officers, but also other ranks who are mentioned in the books. Also the volume and page number. ...

Chris,

on the bottom of following link there is an alphabetical name-index - these are the same names?

Hi Jens,

Am I right that they only supply the archive details where the records are located ? If so, how does one obtain copies of the records ?

Sorry to sound stupid but I had to use translation software.

Hi Kris, yes you are right, he is selling just the information (each name 19 Euro) ! :o

... here in english: http://home.foni.net/~adelsforschung/index5.htm

Sometimes I just take a quick view to the Ranklist names:

... and if the name is listed I take a closer look into my book! ;)

Hi Chris,

Do you have anything on the surname "Wiest" from Mannheim, or thereabouts?

Oberleutnant dR Heinrich Wiest of Landwehr Sanit?ts Kompagnie 30 received the Baden Z?hringen Lion-Knight 2nd Class with Swords (BZ3bX) on 3 September 1915.

Chris's source extracts unit history mentions, basically, of Super Heroes being named for some extraordinary action... NOT run of the mill stuff.

Hi,

not in all cases, often they are just a simple leutnant whose name is mentioned because he commanded a section, many Generals and super heroes have no mention while the simple fact that one was a company commander in the right place and time or Gefreiter who got an EK1 MAY have gotten you onto the list.

As the reichsarchive books are (each) so very different in their formats, different volumes (for different battles) mentions very different kinds of men.

It is VERY hit and miss, but if you ARE lucky enough to find a mention, it is pretty cool.
