Please note that many German names contain umlauts over the vowels a, o and u (ä, ö and ü). There is no way to search for names containing umlauts, nor is there a way for this translator to transcribe the names. When German immigrants came to English-speaking countries, umlauted vowels were often changed. For example, Bündig became Bindig; Krüger became Krueger, Krieger, Kroger, Kroeger or Kruger. Try searching
with the letter string following the vowel, which originally had an umlaut.
Additionally, this search feature is case sensitive, therefore it will be necessary to capitalize proper names.
