[CA-SCGS] German Interest Group Meeting--Saturday, October 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, October 21 2017, at the SCGS Family Research Library. Dick Humphrey presents: "Writing about Current and Future Ancestors"  Don't miss out!

At age 21 my great aunt sparked my interest in genealogy with information about Joseph Bolles, our immigrant ancestor from England who had distant connections to royalty. Later a patriot descendant, Lemuel, fought at Bunker Hill. Facts on index cards eventually gave way to computer software. With Family Tree Maker, I now have 1400 relatives entered for the Humphrey line (with Bolles, Glazebrook, Muirs from Scotland and Fischer from Europe) along with the more recent Canadian and European line of my wife (Long, Walpole, Hoekenson, Ammon). My interest in perpetuating and sharing discoveries has led to charts, photo-history books, articles and talks at reunions and genealogy groups

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.
