Newest Wake County Gen Society Special Interest Group will explore German Roots

The newest SIG under the WCGS umbrella will have its inaugural meeting Saturday, June 19 at 10:30am. The group will meet via Zoom.  The SIG is open to WCGS members and registration is required. Contact Sue Olmsted via email - GermanGenesSIG@gmail.com

From Sue Olmsted, SIG Facilitator:

There are many of us in the WCGS who have  German roots that we would like to explore, but may feel out of our depth.  For the past year I have been working on my maternal line, almost entirely German, and have picked up some information that we can use to start the discussion. 

I think a Special Interest Group will be a vehicle for us to share what we have discovered in our own research and to learn from each other.  Like our other SIGs, I hope everyone will contribute, as this is not meant to be a class.

The first thing I would like to share will be to tell you about an upcoming international German Genealogy Conference , July 17-24, 2021, for which I have registered. .  If you want to learn more, I hope you drop by Saturday the 19th or check out this teaser of some of the speakers :  https://iggc.info/  or you can drop by the SIG kick-off meeting on June 19, 2021.  The SIG meeting will be a Zoom session running from 10:30 to about noon and is open to any WCGS member.

Auf Wiedersehen,
