Germans have been emigrating to America since the seventeenth century and today are the largest self-reported ancestry group living in the country. No matter when your ancestors arrived in the U.S., this online seminar will teach you how to trace your German ancestry. You will discover key records, resources, and repositories, while gaining important skills and strategies for finding your ancestors. Topics include: migration patterns, finding German origins, deciphering records and German script, using and accessing records, and leveraging online resources.
This online seminar includes access to 5+ hours of pre-recorded presentations by professional genealogists; a live q&a session with the instructors; special offers and virtual “door prizes”; and access to handouts, slides, and other resources until November 30, 2021.
