[CA-SCGS] German Interest Group Meeting - Saturday, January 21, 2017

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, January 21, 20167, at the SCGS Family Research Library. Group member, Walt Sturrock will present "Cousin Connections." 

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 two 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. Walt's monthly instruction on German Script has become a favorite segment of the German Interest Group meetings.

Members of the SCGS German Interest Group
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.
