Hi Harold, these are some of the German news sites I use when searching for information:
*The site is in English which reports all the headline stories, local and international, press releases, and so forth.
*Again this link is in English. Covers everything.
*In German, but if you know the language you shouldn't have a problem.
*I use this site when searching for news about the Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg family, which they do report on. Again, it's in German.
German Online Newspapers
*This site offers a mega list of all the newspapers in Germany from Berlin, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Munich, and all the smaller cities, villages, and towns in between. This site has it all. Like the previous two links, this is mainly in German.
