If your ancestors were from the area around Berlin, please visit the Brandenburg GenWeb site for leads and links to aid in your research.

Berlin is the largest city in Germany with approximately 3.5 million people and is located on the rivers of Spree and Havel. It was the capital of Prussia until 1945, and the capital of Germany from 1871 until 1945. From 1949 until 1989, the city was divided into two parts: West Berlin and East Berlin. East Berlin was the capital of the German Democratic Republic, and a wall was erected between East and West in 1961 and remained until Nov 1989. After the unification of Germany in October of 1990, Berlin once again became the capital.
