SCHEDULE
PART 1: FRIDAY AFTERNOON, APRIL 9, 2021
1:30PM-2:30PM: The Voyages of Our German Ancestors
  • Germans began immigrating to what became the United States in 1683, according to documented history. This talk will highlight significant aspects of the first four major waves through 1910 using available immigration and emigration records to tell their stories.
2:45PM-3:45PM: Stymied by Stieglers: Solved Using Indirect Evidence—A Case Study 
  • German immigrant, Christina Stiegler, arrived in the US with her sister in 1874. No US records for anyone named Stiegler mentioned the town of origin. Emigration records, gazetteers, and church records, plus a DNA connection, provide indirect evidence for finding her German home town.
PART 2: SATURDAY AFTERNOON, APRIL 10, 2021
1:30PM-2:30PM: He took HER name: Understanding German Farm Names
  • In some parts of Germany, the farm carried the surname of the family, whether inherited by a son or daughter, and the spouse would have to assume that surname. This lecture will explain the social structure and naming patterns in these areas.
2:45PM-3:45PM: Discover the Holdings of German Archives
  • German archives, both state and local, may contain emigration, court, tax, and other records relevant to our German ancestors. This lecture will explain how to find the relevant archives and their holdings, including online records, when available.
