I know that some documents were pulled (I had links that didn't work anymore), I dropped an email to the admin and he let me know that they had pulled some old documents that were lacking water marks. Yet, from what I know, those I had issues with had "returned" by now.

I was looking through Findbuch 12474 (Korps) and I noticed that Akte 624 seems to be missing. I know further material for 47th Pz Korps exists as I have the original Russian translations from 10 years ago (a few pages at least). Was this pulled, or is there any mention of this ?

AFAIK, 12474-624 was never published. And they haven't scanned it. It's not the only such case, there are more gaps in the numbering. For 12474, ca. 10 files are not on the website.

It can well be that these Akten never existed to start with - there are similar gaps in the numbering of NARA rolls- , or that they don't exist anymore - too damaged to be of use. Impossible to tell.

forgive me if this is a dumb question (if yes please say so), but I was wondering if germandocsinrussia.org will have the function of being translated into English at any point?

thank you in advance, even it does end up being perceived as a stupid question.

The answer is no. You might get lucky and a few important documents will be translated into English. If you want to research the Eastern Front you really need to learn to read Russian and German well enough to translate the documents. It is possible (I learned) but it takes some time. Automatic translators like Google Translate, Prompt, Reverso ... can give fair translation but without knowledge of the language you are translating, you won't be able to tell when the automatic translation is completely wrong.

You others: come on guys, it is not that hard to be pleasant to each other.

Today are present two new Findbuch, 12463 with title "Reichsministerien und andere Behörden des deutschen Reiches, 1917-1945" formed by 232 Akten, and 12464, title "Heeresgruppen Nr. 1-6" and with 96 Akten. Both seem to deal mostly with pre-war document.

Hi Max,

Findbuch, 12463 seems to be of interest:
-Reichskommissar für die Seeschifffahrt
-Organisation Todt
-Deutsche Werke Kiel AG

Thank you for sharing!


Regards

Darius
