How to search in the Bundesarchiv ?

Post by 1999 » 24 Jun 2021 09:05

Hello,
I tried to find very specific informations and I got the idea to search in the Bundesarchiv.
However, I am quite totally lost. I don't know how to search and how to open the document.
Can you help me ?

Did you already use the Bundesarchiv in english language:

Link: https://www.bundesarchiv.de/EN/Navigati ... /home.html
(For some helpful hints please scroll down on the start page...)

Klick on "Find" / "Use" / "Discover" / "Offer", or use the search function...

Good luck for your researches, and welcome to the AHF! :welcome:

P.S. However, I would advise you to contact a German-speaking user here in the forum.
No offense meant, just a little hint.
I'm sure you can find someone willing to help you with your research...

Thank you Bobby, I search the number of losses in the 17th Panzerdivision and 29th motorized division between 22 june and 30 june.
I think that I have to look in the Kriegstagebuch of these divisions but I don't know how to access it.
