Hello Sharon :-)

there is a tips thread specially for genealogical queries where others maybe able to help you. It may be worth posting on there as well. Genealogy questions sometimes get lost on here.

I found this under Cyndis list which lists sites linked to German genealogy:

I hope this helps

Good luck

Good luck with your research
