|A Week-Long Research Experience for those with German Ancestors||| Print ||
We are proud to announce the St. Louis Research Institute–Germany!
15–19 July 2013
The Institute is full; please call the office if interested in being placed on a waiting list.
Do you have German roots? Have you been unsure of where to go or what to do in order to find your German ancestors? From the 1830s to the 1860s, more than one and one-half million Germans immigrated to the United States. Many of these immigrants settled along the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers. This German population made numerous contributions to the cultural, social, religious, and economic conditions of the St. Louis area.
Open to just twenty-five participants to ensure that everyone gets much-needed personal assistance, this week provides an exciting opportunity to further your German family history research. Participants are responsible for their own hotel accommodations and all transportation.
What Is the Purpose?
The week is intended to provide you with the resources and strategies you need to either discover German ancestors or break through a German brick wall. Two StLGS member genealogists who specialize in German research will head a team of local German experts.
You will participate in a number of classes, such as "Deciphering German Handwriting" and "Finding Your German Village," which will aid in expanding your German knowledge. The team will provide individual assistance with research tips for three renowned St. Louis libraries.
This week-long specialty institute is sponsored by StLGS and is appropriate for researchers with some genealogical experience.
