Dear Members,

I am looking for the "Register der im Jahrgang 1908/1909 des Deutschen Ordens-Almanachs selten genannten in- und ausl?ndischen Orden und Ehrenzeichen" by Willi Geile and more specific his mentioning of the various members of Orders and decorations of the Kurfuerstentum Hessen.

If anyone has this book in his collection, a reply is highly appreciated!

Thanks

David

Be aware that the Orders Almanac was NOT a listing of ALL awards recipients-- it was a "vanity press" publication, whose listees PAID to be listed (and paid for the detail or lack thereof in each individual entry).

Ther were only 18 Kurhessen award recipients indexed, total.

Hi Rick, Hi Deruelle,

Thanks!

I would like to have the pages in the DOA where the Order and decorations of Kurhessen are mentioned in the register of the DOA, so I can look the persons up and list them with the orders.

Thanks again it would be a major help
