German Interest Group Meeting July 17

Here's an update on the subject of the German Interest Group meeting on Saturday, July 17.

The workshop will be presented by our guest, Leslie Albrecht Huber, the author of a new book, The Journey Takers.  She will share with us her family's immigrant experiences of "journey takers" from Germany, Sweden and England, with the emphasis on Germany.

"She adds flesh to the bones of a genealogical study by weaving historical context, family stories and personal feelings into the fabric of the story . . . "  - Cindy Howells

A couple of copies of the book are available for purchase at Amazon.com.

If you have German roots, the German Interest Group will help you find the German towns of your ancestors and will give you tips and suggestions to successfully find the immigrants who brought your line to America. 

Questions?  Lois Burlo can be contacted at LHBurlo@Yahoo.com.
