Welcome to this week’s SCDL Tree Talk Tuesdays. How many of you have German anestry in your line and how many of you have hit a brick wall in that research? I know that I have! I wanted to share an upcoming program that will be held at the Western Reserve Historical Society on September 14, 2013.
The event is called “Researching German Ancestors” and the lecturer will be Warren Bittner, CG. Mr. Bittner will be presenting 5 talks about breaking down your brick walls in German Research. The schedule for the day is as follows;
