German Genealogy Begins in the U.S.

Carol Whitton, StLGS projects director

Ultimately we seek a German village of origin in  U.S. records. But first—We connect ourselves to an ancestor. Recognize and avoid online pitfalls. Use a different thought process for each ancestor. Answer U.S. questions. Build the whole U.S. family. Learn about Germany. Verify the German village with two U.S. records. Then, we begin research in Germany with parish records.

If you want to attend in-person, click the red button to sign-up.  Or contact the office as described at the top of this page.
