Mennonites – Amish

Welcome to the ManyRoads
German/ Prussian
Mennonite & Amish Help Center!

If you are new to Prussian/ German Mennonite research or just ‘stumped’ for additional clues and resources, hopefully this page will provide new sources of hope, inspiration, and information. In total, the ‘local’ ManyRoads’ libraries alone contain more than 50GB of original (digital) genealogical and historical source documents. In addition to our documents and tools, this page provides links to what I believe are among the most helpful Internet research resources for conducting Prussian/ German Mennonite research.

Based upon your usage patterns and comments, plus my client research efforts, I will update the contents of this page frequently.


The ManyRoads’ collections as well as all my “Preussische’ research & genealogy efforts are dedicated with love and heartfelt gratitude to:

  • my mother (Luise geboren Senger);
  • my grandparents (Richard Senger & Frieda geboren Recht); and
  • my onkel Erich (Senger).

This was their “Heimat und Heimatland”.

As my Oma frequently said, “Es war einmal.”
