International Germanic Genealogy Conference set for July 2017 in Minneapolis, Minn.
Save the dates July 28-29, 2017, for the first international conference organized by the German-American Genealogical Partnership.
Our society has joined this new and growing international Partnership of Germanic societies across America and Europe. Our members receive a special Partnership discount off the regular conference rate. Registration for the conference, to be held in Minneapolis, Minn., opens in January 2017.
The conference theme — “Connections: International. Cultural. Personal.” — will shape presentations and personal opportunities for both Germanic genealogy professionals and individual hobbyists.
A block of rooms has been reserved for conference attendees at the Minneapolis Marriott Northwest Hotel. You will be able to book rooms at a special rate beginning in August. A special reservation phone number and Marriott link will be available. Watch for more information.
The German-American Genealogical Partnership was begun last year by genealogical society leaders in America, Germany and other countries. Their purpose is to expand cooperation among societies nationally and internationally for the benefit of their individual members. The 2017 international conference is one of several major Partnership initiatives. Hosting the 2017 Partnership conference is the Minnesota-based Germanic Genealogy Society.
