The wine-making Rheinland-Pfalz, or Rhineland-Palatinate, in southwest Germany is rich in history, museums, local festivals, and wine tours. It is also the area from which a large number of Germans emigrated in the 18th and 19th centuries.
Speaker: Claire Gebben
Claire, author of the historical novel The Last of the Blacksmiths and the memoir How We Survive Here, shares an overview of some of the most intriguing aspects of the region’s history for genealogists, as well as points of interest in the Palatinate today for those who enjoy learning more about other cultures, places, and times.
