Join our GERMAN Interest Group meeting:  The Bend Genealogical Society’s German Interest Group is restarting.  The focus of the group is researching German ancestors both in Europe and the United States.  

The first meeting will focus on your individual German ancestor's history including locations in both Europe and the United States. Be prepared to let the group know where your German families were in Europe prior to emigration and where they settled in the United States (or Canada). This information will allow the group to focus future presentations on areas of interest for group members. The Bend Genealogical Society German Interest Group Map from past Interest Group meetings will be updated to reflect the information shared at this meeting.   

Three meetings for this group are initially scheduled: Feb 21st, Mar 20th, and Apr 17th.  The group will be led by BGS member Jim Kleinschmidt.

About Jim Kleinschmidt:  Jim has been doing research on his German ancestors since the early 1990s following in his father’s footsteps. His ancestral roots include Bohemia, Bavaria and the Upper Palatinate and the Neumark of Brandenburg (now in Poland). He has visited ancestral villages in both Bohemia and Bavaria and met some of his European cousins during these visits.

If you are interested in helping or have suggestions for the Group, please go to Contact Us, enter a message in the form, and it will be forwarded to Jim.
