One of the stereotypes surrounding the home front during and immediately after World War I is that Germanophobia eradicated German-American culture as we know it. To be sure, owing to the “guilt by association” reaction to the U.S. entry into the conflict against the Kaiser, many communities substituted Anglo names for Germanic-sounding cuisine, streets, insurance companies, and so on. But, as Don Heinrich Tolzmann shows in the updated edition of his “Cincinnati Germans After the Great War,” inhabitants in that roughly 50% German-American community pulled together to preserve their heritage. While “The Cincinnati Germans after the Great War” is, for the most part, a historical essay, genealogists can profit by consulting the name index to the revised edition, which may help them discover Cincinnati German-American ancestors who figure in its pages.
