those who have not done a lot of their family history to learn where to begin. We will then cover what sources provide what information and where to locate that information whether it will be online or if on-site research trips will be necessary. Then we will cover important aspects of preserving your records, including doing Oral Histories, Photographs,  DNA tests and online record keeping. By the final week you will be able to organize your data into a working family tree, and organize all of the materials necessary to document your research. Each class will allow time for Questions and discussion with the class.

  1. St Charles has long had a history of Nieder Deutsch and this writer knows one of these speakers from New Melle where for a time nearby I once lived.
    Please send me an email address so that I can properly forward you a sample of a German electronic newsletter that I regularly receive for
    Your support on such things.
    I have started here eight years ago in Ohio a small library devoted to this literature.
    Awaiting your reply .

    And oh yes
    I grew up in St. Louis, the
    Near south side. The Germans are now in some of the l a e n d e r teaching this language now in selective schools. You can do a specialty on it in the Gymnasium now in Mecklenburg Vorpommern.
