Event Description

Crossing the Pond From the Comfort of Your Computer

Are you ready to cross the pond to research your German relatives? Did you know you can do that from the comfort of your home?

ICGS Vice President for Programs, Diana Cox, will host a series of videos about researching your German ancestors. Topics to be covered include determining where your ancestral records can be found, online searches of civil and church records, writing for records, and how to successfully read records in German script. Do your research at home and save your trip to Germany for visiting ancestral sites and those distant cousins you have yet to meet.
Everyone is welcome to participate in the Zoom meeting, which will begin at 9:30 a.m. June 26th. Send an email to to receive details on how to join the meeting.
