We provide extensive resources, for instance church record copies of all Bremen churches up to 1811, copies of several regional subsidiary church books, registers of births, marriages and deaths 1811-1875 for the city-state of Bremen and its surrounding communities, a great number of family related sources, a genealogical library and research results on many families in and around Bremen and other German regions. Civil registry office documents can be electronically looked through (members only) as long as the regulations of data privacy are kept.

Members have free online access to our public and internal databases via Internet, which may give results or at least initial hints. You may also subscribe for our internal internet forum (MAUS-Mailingliste), established for the purpose of exchanging research results or genealogical hints among members.

Half-yearly we issue our newsletter (MAUS-Mitteilungsblatt) with reports, informations and coming events. Quarterly members will receive the magazine "Zeitschrift für Niederdeutsche Familienkunde". Furthermore we organize lectures, excursions and quarterly meetings (MAUS-Stammtisch).
