The Südwestdeutsche Blätter für Familien und Wappenkunde (SWDB) is a nationwide trade journal for genealogy and heraldry that appears in Stuttgart . Mainly family and regional historical research in the area of Baden-Württemberg is published.

The Südwestdeutsche Blätter has been published by the Association for Family Studies in Baden-Württemberg and its predecessor associations since 1921. From 1921 up to and including 1944 they appeared as papers for Württemberg family history (volumes 1 to 9). After the association was re-established in 1947, it also resumed its publishing activities. From 1947 onwards, the essays first appeared under the name Results of the Württemberg-Baden Family Research . A total of three issues came out under this name by 1949, which were not included in the official volume count.

Since 1949 regular tape counting has been resumed. The volumes initially appeared irregularly under the name Südwestdeutsche Blätter für Familien- und Wappenkunde and were subdivided into individual issues. Since 1975, the volumes have been published every two years, with each being divided into twelve individual issues. Since 2007 the Südwestdeutsche Blätter has been published as individual annual volumes. Currently under the direction of the historian Immo Eberl .
