Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin / IKAR: Projektgeschichte: Im Jahre 1985 wurde auf Initiative der Deutschen Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) und der drei größten Kartensammlungen in deutschen Bibliotheken, der Bayerischen Staatsbibliothek München, der Niedersächsischen Staats- und Universitätsbibliothek Göttingen und der Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin mit dem überregionalen Katalogisierungsprojekt „Erschließung historisch wertvoller Kartenbestände bis 1850" begonnen. Nach der Offline-Erfassung der Karten in verschiedenen Datenpools während der ersten fünf Jahre erfolgte im Herbst 1991 der Aufbau eines gemeinsamen Online-Katalogisierungssystems (IKAR) durch das Deutsche Bibliotheksinstitut (DBI) in Berlin. Im Jahr 2000 wurde die Altkartendatenbank in den Gemeinsamen Bibliotheksverbund (GBV) überführt, wo sie jetzt allen Interessenten für Recherchen im Internet zur Verfügung steht sowie weiteren Kartensammlungen die Teilnahme an der Katalogisierung ihrer Altkarten ermöglicht.

11 ridiculous future predictions from the 1900 world's fair — and 3 that came true. Do you ever wonder what the future used to look like? I mean back in the day, before we all walked around with glass bricks in our pockets that contained every piece of information that's ever been available and allowed us to connect with anyone anywhere in the world in real time. What did people from more than 100 years ago think our future might look like? That was the question posed to French commercial artist Jean-Marc Côté in 1899. But now that we've lived through that fantastical future, how did these predictions turn out? Here are 11 delightfully inaccurate visions of the year 2000, according to artists from the late-19th century: 1. This one didn't pan out ... unless maybe Côté was just trying to predict the creation of Batman? 2. Again, not spot on ... although to be fair, I'd prefer this to ever flying standby again. 3. Nope. 4. There's a slight chance all this weird aquatic stuff was their way of warning us about the impending threat of sea-level rise from climate change. 5. 6.

German and American Sources for German Emigration to America [Deutsche Genealogie Homepage] [Neuigkeiten] [Allgemeine Hilfe] [Regionale Forschung] [German Genealogy Home] [What's New] [General Help] [Regional Research] German and American Sources for German Emigration to America by Michael P. Palmer I. 1. Abzugsgeld. 2. Not only is the literature of German emigration to America in the 18th century increasingly extensive, but the bibliography is made more complicated by the fact that many of the pioneering works, in particular the short articles of Fritz Braun and Friedrich Krebs published originally in the 1950's and 1960's, have been reprinted, often in translation and in amalgamated form, many times.

German Propaganda Archive (Guide Page) Nazi and East German Propaganda Guide Page Propaganda was central to Nazi Germany and the German Democratic Republic. The German Propaganda Archive includes both propaganda itself and material produced for the guidance of propagandists. The goal is to help people understand the two great totalitarian systems of the twentieth century by giving them access to the primary material. My book titled Bending Spines: The Propagandas of Nazi Germany and the German Democratic Republic (Michigan State University Press, 2004) provides an analysis of much of the material on the German Propaganda Archive.

Atlas des Deutschen Reichs The map below, reproduced from the original title page, depicts the area covered by the Atlas des Deutschen Reichs, and shows the division of the entire area into the nine main maps and two smaller maps of the original atlas. For this online edition, each main map was further divided into four sections which may be downloaded as pdf files. To find the map showing a particular location, use the accompanying Gazetteer. Overview Map Genealogical Application The Atlas des Deutschen Reichs by Ludwig Ravenstein is relatively rare in libraries of the United States. Place-names and political jurisdictions often change over time. First, one needs to locate the family's place of origin in the Ravenstein atlas by looking up the place-name in the gazetteer portion of the atlas and then finding the place on the map cited in the gazetteer entry. How to use the online edition NOTE: To use the Ravenstein Atlas you must have Adobe's Acrobat Reader 3.0 (or later) software installed on your computer. 1. 2.

'Britain's Atlantis' found at bottom of the North sea - a huge undersea world swallowed by the sea in 7000BC Doggerland was an area of land, now lying beneath the southern North Sea, that connected Great Britain to mainland Europe during and after the last Ice Age. It was then gradually flooded by rising sea levels around 6,500–6,200 BCE. Geological surveys have suggested that it stretched from Britain’s east coast to the Netherlands and the western coasts of Germany and the peninsula ofJutland. It was probably a rich habitat with human habitation in the Mesolithic period, although rising sea levels gradually reduced it to low-lying islands before its final destruction, perhaps following a tsunami caused by the Storegga Slide. The archaeological potential of the area had first been discussed in the early 20th century, but interest intensified in 1931 when a commercial trawler operating between the sandbanks and shipping hazards of the Leman Bank and Ower Bank east of the Wash dragged up a barbed antler point that dated to a time when the area was tundra.

Uprising in East Germany, 1953 Washington, D.C., June 15, 2001 – Forty-eight years ago, on June 17, 1953, the German Democratic Republic (GDR) erupted in a series of workers' riots and demonstrations that threatened the very existence of the communist regime. The outburst, entirely spontaneous, shocked the GDR's ruling Socialist Unity Party (SED) and their Kremlin sponsors, who were still reeling from the death of Joseph Stalin three months earlier. Now, a new National Security Archive document volume based on recently obtained and translated records from archival sources throughout the former Soviet bloc and the United States sheds light on this landmark Cold War event, which exposed some of the deep political and economic rifts that led to the collapse of the communist system in 1989. Uprising in East Germany, 1953: The Cold War, the German Question, and the First Major Upheaval behind the Iron Curtain is edited by Christian F. The West, too, was divided on how to respond.
