FWIW, this is Verein für Computergenealogie. According to the webpage, it offers genealogical meta-searches in about 10 different databases.
Thanks so much for this. Good thing I'm brushing up on my German!
Thanks!!! I'm about to go out my rusty high school German skills to good use.  Thankfully I can read it a bit better than I can speak it.
Me too, Amanda. I'm sure, too, we have even more of us in that liferaft!
For those who do not know how to translate the page from German to English: once the page opens in German, right-click anywhere on the page, and then click on "Translate to English."
WHAT'S right-click for a MAC?? A how-to lesson by keystroke is needed.
That's a great question! Unfortunately, I know nothing about Apple products. Perhaps, another member can answer that for us.
I believe on a Mac you ctrl click.  I'm not 100% sure
Yes, Ctrl Click or two fingers on the pad.  But when I open in Google, Google recognized it is in German and asks if you want to translate to English.  

Also, read the messages below where an English version has been provided.

There is an English version of genwiki though not as much content as the German version

There are several databases

Meta search combines these and some more.

Thanks!!! E. Pischel!!
Oh yes, thank you.  Love these links.  Looked up things that years ago, I had to have someone over there look up for me and translate then mail it to me.  Did not know these were online or that you could get translation, wow!  Thank you.
