I'm trying to do a little serious research on "my" lifetime--about

1160-1240, south of Meissen along the Elbe to the Erzgebirge(Ore Mts.)

Nowadays it's Saxony, but back then Saxony was in a different place and

this area is listed as Meissen on some maps. I've found or know where to

find most of the books on this list. I would greatly appreciate some more

suggestions. The college library I've been raiding recently has a good

selection (including a goodly number in German) and I may be missing

something even there. This is my current list:



Barraclough, Geoffrey.  The Origins of Modern Germany. DD89.B27 1952x

   Factors in G. Hist.  

   Medieval Ger(911-1250)  DD126 B35 1948 studies by various people


Bauml, Franz.   Medieval Civilization in Germany 800-1273 very good.

   copied lots for Mechthild. Also had lots of good stuff on MHG lit.

   DD63. B14

Stubbs, Wm. Germany in the Early Middle Ages 476-1250. New York:

I have more of my own and hope to find more as my search continues, but

may be missing something obvious.  I'm also fleshing out my family history

at the same time, of course.
