    Hello,

    I got an information from a Bundesarchiv in Freiburg, Germany that the German Abschussmeldunden on microfilms were handed over back to Germany from USA. A friend of mine says it was in 2001.A friend of mine is in touch with Bundesarchiv as he wants to get some Abschussmeldungen. I hope he will get them.

    Anyhow, my question is- did the US side make copies of those microfilms and if so how and where can I get the certain Abschussmeldungen, I mean in USA?

    Thank you.

    The U.S. did make copies of the Abschussmeldungen.

    I have a PDF file of the master index listing the 63 rolls and what is contained on each roll. Would this be of any help?

    Yes and no, Abchussmeldung is a concrete report about shot down (kill). It was written after the mision by the pilot claiming the Abschuss (kill) or Herausschuss (bomber forced to leave the formation). Then the pilot had to wait for the kill official confirmation.
    List of the kills would be Abschussliste.
