Every summer, these two restless wanderers, Carpenter and Riemer, go snooping around in Germany, scratching for whatever snippets of information can be found – anything new, different, odd, or perplexing – all in the fields of German genealogy, German history, and German culture. Now comes their winter excursion.
Just three days before the Sacramento German Genealogy Society (SGGS) meeting on January 22nd, the pair will have returned, breathless, from having attended the five-day German track of the annual Salt Lake Institute in Salt Lake City. At this meeting, with their heads bubbling with whatever “neat stuff” they have come away with, they will lay out and discuss as fresh discoveries for all to see, hear, and digest.
Date: Tuesday, Jan. 22, 2013
Time: 1:00 p.m.
Location: St. Marks Methodist Church, 2391 St. Marks Way, Sacramento
Meetings are held in MacMurdo Hall, on the basement level. An elevator is available. Guests are welcome. Attendees are advised to arrive early, perhaps at 12:30 or even a little earlier, in order to have opportunities (1) to look over the books for sale, (2) to discuss a problem with a “Quick Questions” expert, or (3) to become acquainted with other services that SGGS offers. Admission is free.
Attendees are also welcome to attend the “Study Group,” a small group that meets on the same day from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. in the church's Education Building (second floor, usually in room E-22). People who attend the Study Group discuss ideas and make suggestions for researching specific German ancestors. Admission is free.
