Heimatbücher and  Ortsfamilienbücher:
  An Ortssippenbuch, Familienbuch or Ortsfamilienbuch should list all of the families of a certain village with their genealogical data in alphabetical order. All genealogical connections known to the author should be given. (Ort means place; Sippe means kinship or tribe.)

A Heimatbuch is quite different. It tells the history of a village and only a few of them provide all of the names of inhabitants in former times. See list: Abthausen/Apatin Publications
