If you are coming to the Markham area to do research, some advance preparation is most helpful. As a person who has done research and provides assistance to researchers, I have learned that being prepared results in the best use of limited time. This does not mean one is not open to new discoveries that one discovers "accidentally" nor to the suggestions made by archives or library staff who are familiar with the specific resources of their centre.
Below is a list some of the major sources of Berczy family related materials.
The following web sites provide some good suggestions on preparing for a "genealogical research trip". Suggestions are generic so they need to be adapted to your visit to Markham, Ontario. Check the specific Resource Centres below for their information.

The cemetery transcriptions are most helpful when trying to find the tombstone of your ancestors and they are available for purchase. Check the web site for those that have been transcribed. The newsletter is very interesting.

German Web Sites
From September 27 to October 10, 2001 some of the Association members visited Germany with a focus on the areas we believe our ancestors lived, visiting Altona by land and sea (the point from which they embarked), and attending the festivities and witnessing the signing of the partnership between the Town of Markham and Noerdlingen. The fall 2001 newsletter contains details and reflections on this trip.
Below are links to web sites of places and areas that were visited.
