Ancestry guide to reading German civil registrations

I got a fun little treat in my email inbox last night from Ancestry.com — a printable guide to reading German civil registrations (government records of births, marriages, and deaths). I have personally had a lot of practice reading these, but I am so glad that Ancestry.com is sending these guides out to researchers. Researching our German ancestors¬†in Germany is so important to gaining perspective on their lives. If you didn’t get the email with the guide from Ancestry.com, here is a link to the PDF file:¬†http://c.ancestry.com/cs/media/social-research-german-civil-registration.pdf
