An appendix contains the usual indexes (wives, surnames, places, professions) and multiple lists including extracts from the ship passenger lists, veterans of the First and Second World Wars, Großkomloschers who fled in 1944, were taken to forced labor in the USSR, were part of the Baragan deportation, and a list of names with their nicknames. Family numbers provide a reference for these individuals.
