Genealogical Resources for German-American Ancestry, Online and Off
Instructor: Lori Bessler
This hands-on computer workshop will help the family researcher
identify resources that are found on the Web as well as those that are
not online. There are many collections that record the lives of our
ancestors in Germany as well as their lives after they have arrived
here in the United States, but finding them can be daunting. The
strategies presented here will help break down brick walls that
genealogists may encounter in their research.
