September Evening Meeting Recap

Professional genealogist and genealogical story writer Ursula Krause, visiting from Berlin, Germany, spoke to EGS members and guests last Thursday night. She gave an overview of what life was like in German manorial estates, villages, small towns as well as the rural community. Her overview included the reasons for emigration which included historical developments. Tips and tricks were also given to help determine where ancestors may have come from.

The meeting was so interesting and time went by so quickly that President Larry Pepper had to remind us that the library was closing.

If you were at the meeting and did not receive a handout, send us an email and we'll make sure you are sent one.
