Question about FOKO databases on

Hi all, my apologies if this is in the wrong place. I'm not sure where to post it. I have recently discovered the German genealogy website and have been searching the FOKO database. In most cases I can check the researcher supply my email and then get a contact email. In one case I am searching by location for the town Erlabrunn and the surnames Herbert & Schubert. The contact comes up as a book with the (I guess?) name AL Kiehl. When I click on it takes me to this screen : and lists an archive? Has anyone had experience with this site and if so could you please tell me what this means? Is it saying I am supposed to contact the Nurnberg archive? That site is somewhat confusing. Any help is appreciated.

Hi Chris,

yes, that means that you should contact the GFF archives.

Regards, Wolfgang
