April Webinar

April, 2014
German-American Resources for Genealogists
  • Presenter: Antje Petty      
  • Date:  Tuesday, April 15, 2014   
  • Time:  7:00 PM CST
  • Webinar Description:  Researching one’s ancestors from German-speaking Europe comes with many challenges. The quality and availability of resources may differ greatly, depending on an immigrant’s place of origin, time of departure, and more. The investigation is further complicated by the fact that documents—including many created in America—were not only written in German, but also in a script that even native speakers cannot easily read today. This webinar will offer suggestions on how to use German-American resources in genealogy, including those available at the Max Kade Institute.
