More Americans have German-speaking ancestry than any other ethnicity. While German research has challenges involving historical disunity and shifting boundaries – as well as older records handwritten in a chicken-scratchy version of cursive – the flip side is that many documents have survived wars and social disorder. As a group, Germans have a reputation for “Teutonic thoroughness” in producing and retaining many types of documents that other ethnics lack.
