Originally organised by Hermann Goering, the gestapo was Prussia's secret state police. However, it eventually became part of the SS and operated throughout Germany and in occupied areas. Members of the Gestapo generally operated in civilian clothing but, in occupied areas, often wore SS uniform with police-style (rather than SS) rank insignia. Membership of the Gestapo didn't necessarily mean membership of the SS.

General"Nazi" is sometimes used as a general term for any German soldier or politian. Actually, Nazi should refer to the political party and its members.

SS refers to the police branch of government. Many of the SS police were Nazi party members. Later during the war, a military branch of the SS was created that was called the Waffen-SS, which was not as indoctrinated into the Nazi system.

You can get a more technical that involves the organization and names of the various organizations.
