Estonia: interesting genealogy resource

There are some very interesting resources in English on the Estonia Genealogical Society Web site

Readers can see examples (and click to zoom in) of what the records - German, Russian and Estonian - look like.

Other sections include maps of Estonia from the end of the 19th century and 1939; examples of Gothic handwriting in German records, a list of the Parnu branch members and their families (many Jewish names) being researched.

There are many useful links in English and a list of genealogical resources in countries worldwide.

There are also contact details for Estonian family registry offices, holding records from 1926-1940/49, and the Central Family Registry Office which holds documents from the 1830s-1926.
