[CA--SCGS] German Interest Group Meeting, Saturday, July 21, 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, July 21, 2018, at the SCGS Family Research Library. You will not want to  miss Chris Green's DNA presentation as she shares with the German Interest Group how she solved three cases using DNA!

Following in my aunt's footsteps, I've been doing genelogy research for over 20 years. All of my ancestors were German speaking and arrived in the US between 1818 and 1907. Some lines, Wildy, Markwalter and Von Sprecken, have been well studied but I still know little of the Kunze, Bumb, Hohenzollern, Denninger, Nuernberger, Haupt, Erdmann, and Hager.

I took my first DNA test in 2012 and fell in love with genetic genealogy. DNA Day at the 2013 Burbank Jamboree taught me new ways to use results and by 2014, I was using these methods to solve unknown parentage cases. I also volunteer as an administrator in the DNA Detectives Facebook Group. My presentation will take you through solving three cases: an adoptee and two DNA surprises

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 2018, 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.
