This is a new project coordinated by Therese Schmidt under the Integrators Project. Do you have a genealogical reference book that you're willing to share, do you have access to rare or out-of-print books from your local library, or do you need a look-up from one? If you're willing to share, please send titles, authors, publication dates, and short descriptions Erin or Eowyn. If you need something from one of these books, click to the profile page of the person offering it and use the "Private Message" link to contact them.

(If you are in need of an in person lookup or photos of a particular tombstone please see [[Help:Genealogy Lookups and Tombstone Photos|Genealogy Lookups and Tombstone Photos].)

Altis Family Tree. Aileen "Altis" Brauer. Third Revision, dated 1 April 1998. In the library of Rick Young.

This is a private book created by Aileen "Altis" Brauer. It contains the descendant tree of the brothers Daniel & Johannes Franziskus Altig who were both born in the mid 1700s. It has no index but I used a database and created one so lookups are fairly easy to do. There are a few pages devoted to listing the various contributors, by name, but no assignation is made as to who contributed what. Thus, although I have a fairly high degree of faith in it, it should be taken as a reference for leads rather than an authority on its own. It contains approximately 13,000 names.
