Monthly Meeting: 1 to 3 pm, 4th Tuesday

You can attend at our "in person" location or via Zoom. We meet in-person in a classroom at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Sacramento - courtesy of the Sacramento FamilySearch Library (we are no longer meeting at St. Mark's United Methodist Church). Here's a map

And more German culture!...
SGGS' monthly general meetings consist of a lecture by a knowledgable genealogist, either a local or nationally known speaker. The topic is usually a German genealogy research technique or resource. Sometimes the program consists of German history or a cultural performance.
Monthly meetings are free to SGGS members and guests. Visitors are welcome, although we ask that regular non-member attendees join the Society, as our primary income is membership dues. SGGS’ cost of providing these exceptional programs is significant, especially for our out-of-town speakers (travel and lodging costs).

SGGS meetings usually are NOT held during the following months:
  • Month when an annual seminar or workshop takes place
  • November (due to the Thanksgiving holiday)
  • December (due to the Christmas holiday)
We will transmit all these meetings via Zoom and, if the speaker grants permission, we record the presentation.  These recordings will be posted in the members-only section of our website. Those connecting via Zoom will be able to view announcements, watch the presentation, download the handout and participate in the subsequent question and answer session.
