The Research Unit Uckermark was founded July 13, 2006, as part of the Brandenburgische Genealogische Gesellschaft (BGG) „Roter Adler“ e.V. Our goal is to support genealogical research in the Uckermark. The area includes the historic Uckermark as described in Historisches Ortslexikon, Teil VIII Uckermark by Lieselott Enders (1986).

Description of the research area

The Uckermark is a historic landscape in northeast Germany. It was formed by three districts (Landkreise) Prenzlau, Templin and Angermünde. Today the Brandenburg district Uckermark represents the biggest part of the historic Uckermark. Historic Uckermark territories belong today to the Brandenburg districts Barnim and Oberhavel as well as to Mecklenburg-Vorpommern districts Vorpommern-Greifswald and Mecklenburgische Seenplatte.

What we offer:

  • Supporting the research of ancestors in the Uckermark (suggestions regarding sources, literature, general tips),
  • Platform for exchanging research results with others,
