This inventory (Bestandsverzeichnis) of the former Brandenburg districts of Königsberg, Soldin, Landsberg, Arnswalde, Friedeberg, Ost- und Weststernberg, Crossen, Züllichau-Schwiebus, Guben und Sorau (east of the river Neiße) and the formerly to the Provinz Posen belonging districts of Schwerin, Meseritz and Bomst is the result of a several years time consuming work. In May 2017 all date have been updated.

All German and Polish archives within reach are listed, as well as the partly filmed records of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Utah.

Based on the "Gemeindelexikon 1930/1932" (lexicon of municipality)  all communities are listed alphabetically, including the Polish town name and residential areas and settlements belonging to the community.

The former authorities are named: respectively, the Evangelical, Lutherian or Catholic church and the Jewish; the civil registration office; the district court. With separate listings for births, marriages, and deaths, all the proven years for which church records, duplicates of church records, and civil registers are available and reachable at this time (with place of deposit, including addresses), are given in detail.

For the first time after World War II a complete inventory and a comprehensive listing is available for the interested public, genealogists, family tree makers, archives and registries.

The handy list of abbreviations included in the book makes it easy to interpret the contents. 304 pages of inventory listings, including a color map of areas covered, softcover.
