Last week-end DGS held its annual Summer Institute, an in-depth study of German records, resources and repositories for genealogical research. Our speaker, John Humphrey, is a nationally-recognized authority on German genealogy.
Topics included a primer on German history, German language and handwriting skills, German-American newspapers, plus published sources and online archives. A bonus is this list of links to web sites suggested by Mr. Humphrey in his seminar which DGS has posted to our web site: 2010 German Institute
For those who attended, DGS would like your feedback. Did y’all enjoy the workshop? What was the most interesting thing that you learned that you didn’t know before about German genealogy research? Do you have any suggestions for the Society to improve future Institutes?
Thanks for talking…
