In addition to the popular monthly presentations on Common German Words by Edward McKelvey and Reading German Gothic Script by Walt Sturrock, the group will enjoy:
Her Grandmother's Recipe Book by Edie Ditmars
That will be followed up by a group discussion of Betrayal: Who absconded with your family research and claimed it as their own?
Charles Bier was born in Washington, DC. His research has taken him back to Hans Bier who was born around 1587 in Fohren, Rhineland. The family arrived on the shores of the United States in 1834. Their saga, which Charles insists is in partial status, includes Biers who were mayors, bakers, blacksmiths, Confederate soldiers, and the Master Book Binder at the Library of Congress and Folger Shakespeare Library. Charles is a regular fixture at the SCGS Library and a particular favorite of many of the Librarians there. His presentations at the German Interest Group receive rave reviews.
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. They often have a speaker on German research and the group is happy to offer assistance with your German research problems. New members and guests are always welcome.
