German History and Genealogy by John Schmal
Many people know that they have German ancestors, but they know and understand very little about German history. Using a PowerPoint presentation, John will discuss German history and its influence on immigration to America. This lecture will focus on key elements of German geography which are essential to successfully locating your German ancestors --- as well as tracing them back many generations.
The second half of the presentation will discuss certain research techniques for locating your German ancestors. John will discuss certain tools for LOCATING A PLACE OF ORIGIN (which is essential to even beginning your search). John will also show the attendees how to use some of the German databases available on the web.
