[CA--SCGS] German Interest Group Meeting, Saturday, November 17, 2018

German Interest Group





Researching your family tree and finding new, exciting, and sometimes surprising family connections? 

Join the SCGS German Interest Group at their next meeting to be held from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm on Saturday, November 17, 2018, at the SCGS Family Research Library.


                 Walt Sturrock presents Part II of "The Life And Times Of Henry Pascale"


 
Walt Sturrock is a professional artist and photographer.  
His love of history, photo restoration, and family research brought him to SCGS and its German Interest group several years ago.  There Walt found support and guidance for researching his German roots as he learned to read and translate old German Gothic Script documents.  As a result, he has been able to trace his German roots back to the 1600's.




The goal of the SCGS German Interest Group is to provide a wide range of resources both inside and outside the SCGS Library to help trace German families. Throughout 2017, our German Group will renew its "Routing Our Roots" as well as present short programs on German Exiles in Los Angeles County, History of German Towns, Human Interest Stories on folks of German Heritage, learning German Words and Old German Script, plus any last minute thoughts.


For more information, please contact Allene Aubertin.

Join the group as they kick off the new year and celebrate Italian heritage!

The SCGS Italian Interest Group meets six times per year and provides a forum for supporting genealogical research using both Italian and American records.

We also learn about Italian history, which provides a context and background for our individual family histories. The group has something to offer everyone, from beginners to experts and the meetings are open to anyone interested in Italian genealogy.
