addendum to previous post:

made error on name of magazine aimed at UK people living in or planning to mover to France. it is not FRANCE magazine (tho it is a good mag) but IN FRANCE which is heavy on the "moving to" part.

Also, the International Herald Tribune has a new feature: At Home Abroad. You can look at it online at www.iht.com.

'In France' magazine.
Since the UK is in EU, there is far less red tape for Britons wanting to move over to France than for Americans. It's estimated that more than one in twenty Britons own a property abroad, mostly in France and Spain, and more than a million live semi- or permanently in France. They can also work or set up in business (running B&B, say) without permit, and pensioners have access to French health system. So a lot of advice and life stories in that magazine or similar publications won't apply to non-EU citizens.

true, the UK has the advantage being in the EU. I did not mean to imply that the info would have one to one application to an american, it does not. It can help though with info like: banks with english speaking staff, legal papers needed for house purchase and a feel for the fees involved and in general raise issues and problems you might not think of, though your course of action as an american may not be that of a Briton.

I am now an american citzen but was born and raised in Germany. My brothers, sisters and mother are all german citizens. How easy would it be for me to work and live over there for a while? Does it make a difference if you have relatives living in the country you want to work in?

I'm no expert on German immigration law, so you need to direct your query to the nearest German Consulate. Did you have to give up your German citizenship when you became a naturalised American? And was your renunciation of German passport accepted by the German authorities? I know ethnic Germans from former Soviet Union etc are granted citizenship, but I don't think it will apply in your case. As a US citizen, you will be subject to both visa and work permit requirements, and I doubt if having German siblings and parent makes any difference. Maybe your fluency in German (I assume you have) may make it easier to obtain work permit, and improves your prospect of finding an employer willing to sponsor you for permits.
