The IGGP program committee has made this a truly international conference with not only topics about German lands but also international presenters. Speakers will be coming not only from Germany, but also Switzerland, Austria, Ireland, Australia, Brazil, and Serbia. These experts do not usually present in the United States, making this a rare opportunity to learn from them. And, of course, experts in the field of German genealogy from the United States will be in person. And, of course, experts in the field of German genealogy from the United States will be in person in Fort Wayne as well. Three highlighters among the international presenters are listed in the following.

***Dr. Thomas Aigner, the person behind Matricula, the place one can find church registers from Austria, Germany, Poland, Serbia and Slovenia
***Viktor Pordzik, the archivist of the Bremen Archive
***Andrea Bentschneider, an expert on Mecklenburg

Complementing the international team of presenters are exceptional speakers who are known on the lecture circuits here in the United States. Among my favorites are the following individuals who were listed in this ezine last month.

***Jim Beidler
***Gail Blankenau
***Joe Everett
***Michael Lacopo
***Teresa McMillin

There will be numerous brand-new presentations for those who are more experienced researchers.  And new to the IGGP conferences scene will be German script workshops, held on site, by Kathy Schober. One would learn something from all of these individuals even if you were trying not to! Over 80+ presenters will present new information, in person and/or virtually, and on demand.  Keep checking the website often for additional information. https://iggp.org/
