Felix,

Thanks for the link. I actually do have a copy of the Ehrenrangliste and the information from it has been incorporated into this site for about a year now. It’s where the data on most 1919 to 1929 promotions and dates when officers left naval service comes from. (The Ehrenrangliste is the standard work on what Kaiserliche Marine officers did during World War I.)

It's some of the other titles on that CD that are exactly what we're after, in this case, the 1925, 1926, and 1938 Ranglisten. The same company also offers a 1941 Rangliste on a separate CD. These four files will close a lot of holes in our commander files (promotion dates, type of commission, WWI Austrian and Ottoman decorations to some German naval officers etc.)

That said, there are still going to be some gaps in our officer database so I'm still very interested in hearing from anyone that might have access to volumes of the Rangliste that I don’t have.

Best wishes,
Michael
