Welcome to the Galizien German Descendants Genealogy Database. The GGD Database includes multiple genealogy databases contributed by individuals whose German ancestors migrated to Galizien and whose descendants subsequently migrated to other parts of the world, including back to Germany. Each tree represents the individual research work of the tree owner. Your search results include matching names from all trees.

feature 2 About the Genealogy Data available at this Website
The GGD Genealogy Database is powered by software created by TNG (The Next Generation Genealogy Sitebuilding). TNG will not display information about living persons if a person's record includes a birth year which was less than 100 years ago. Private information will begin to be automatically shown once a person is older than 100 years, based on the birth date in the record. Therefore we urge GEDCOM owners to assure that each of their persons contains at least an approximate birth year if the exact birth date is not known. If a person's death date is present, then the Privacy rules do not apply and all information will be shown.
