Topic: Learn about a major website used by genealogists in Germany — It has various databases and features but they were all originally written in the German language with a few English language options. There’s Historic Geo Information, some Local Heritage Books, Regional Portals, Meta search, User Contributed Family Trees, and much more. Come learn about this exciting website and the easiest ways to translate the German language on those web pages.
Speaker: Dorothy Pretare started collecting family history in 1995 and is active in 2 local genealogical societies, leader of the EGS German Interest Group and a member of 2 societies in Minnesota. In 2008, she visited her ancestral villages in old East Germany and present day Poland.
