Eastside Genealogical Society German Interest Group


The German Interest Group of The Eastside Genealogical Society will meet on Friday, April 7, 2017, from 1 to 3 pm in the Relief Society Room of the LDS Church at 10675 NE 20thSt, Bellevue, WA 98004 with doors opening at 12:45 pm for networking. Visitors are always welcome at our meetings.


“Newspaper Research: What’s Available and How to Find Scanned Images”: Newspaper research can provide clues to birthplaces, keys to finding relatives and adding local flavor to our ancestor’s lives. Finding the newspaper in the area of research and during a specific time frame can be challenging. Three web sites will be shared to help discover the names of the newspapers available, the time frames they were published and major sources of online images.  This includes all English newspapers as well as foreign language newspapers, including German, available in America, plus a world map of historical newspapers.


Speaker: Janet O’Conor Camarata, as a genealogist, has researched her own family history for over 25 years. She is a seminar presenter and trainer in a variety of genealogy subjects to societies and libraries across Washington; a newsletter editor of the Kittitas County Genealogy Society (KCGS); a publicity chairman and past-president of South King County Genealogical Society (SKCGS).   She is a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists and is a graduate of the University of Washington Genealogy and Family History program
