    Using Ortsippenbücher to Research Your Family

    Presented by Dan Lilienkamp

    Ortsippenbücher contain genealogical information about families within a specific town, village, or parish. Information can cover many generations of a family going back to the beginning of written records. Discover the areas of Germany where these books are available and learn how to use this resource yourself through a case study that will take a St. Louis Family back through the beginning of the records.

    Doors open at 2:00 pm.  Program will start at 2:30.
