This four-hour hands-on computer workshop (offered twice, on two different dates) will introduce materials and research techniques that address the unique challenges faced by genealogists looking for their ancestors from German-speaking Europe. The first half of the workshop will provide a general overview of resources--online and off--on this side of the Atlantic; the second half will focus on records available in historic German-American communities and in Europe.
