German Genealogy Workshop at WCHS


Ready to start your German research but don't know where to start? Overwhelmed by researching when everything is written in German?  Join the Wright County Historical Society's (WCHS) Reference Librarian Michelle Monson for a fact-filled workshop on starting your German Genealogy on Monday, January 26th from 1:30-3:00pm at the Wright County Heritage Center (2001 Hwy 25 N, Buffalo, MN). This is the first of three genealogical workshops being offered by the Wright County Historical Society this winter.

This session will be held in the Wright County Heritage Center's Activity Room where Michelle, through a series of digital images and documents, take you step by step through the sometimes perplexing world of German genealogy research. All online examples will be projected on the Activity Room walls; attendees will not be required to use computers during the workshop. This session is free; RSVP's are mandatory for participation as space is limited to only 20 participants.  Please RSVP to 763-682-7323.

Any participants who have never been WCHS members will also have a one-time opportunity to purchase a discounted annual WCHS membership for only $8.00. WCHS membership is required to access online resources in our genealogical library, however membership is NOT REQUIRED to participate in this workshop.
