International German Genealogy Conference

4 months to go … still time for wine-ing 

If you’re coming to Sacramento in June for the International German Genealogy Partnership conference, have you left some free time to explore the California wine-growing regions?

In 2016, the state grew 4 million tons of wine grapes, including more than 110 varieties. And it’s all for the visiting with a short road trip from Sacramento, or by signing up for the pre-arranged day-long adventure tour to the wine country.

What goes well with wine? Cheese, of course! The California Cheese Trail runs through several of these regions. Visit for a roundup of travel information.

You could even combine your German heritage research with a visit to San Benito County, where German and French immigrants planted the first grapes in the mid-1800s.

Some wine and cheese would help everyone relax at the end of a busy conference day. We’re planning Connections 2 Discoveries sessions to link you with others interested in similar topics. Keep checking the website for updates.

But that doesn’t mean you can’t make it up as you go. If you connect with others during the day, invite them to gather in a quiet spot. Sorry, wine and cheese are not included in your conference registration. <smile>

Review the program for the weekend, decide which programs are of interest and then register.

Contact the hotels for your reservation. All conference sessions are in the Hyatt Regency – the Marriott is only a couple blocks away.

Have questions? Email the conference team. Need to update your registration? Contact the help desk for assistance.

We look forward to seeing you in 4 short months!

Your hosts, the Sacramento German Genealogy Society and the International German Genealogy Partnership, encourage you to learn more about the products and services offered by conference sponsors.
We thank them for their support.
