16 Years of Insights: Protestant Church Records in the U.S. - Roger P. Minert (SGGS Meetings and Events)
St. Mark's United Methodist Church, 2391 St. Marks Way, Sacramento - MacMurdo Hall
SGGS will hold its Study Group at 11 am followed by the general meeting at 1 pm.
To be presented by Roger P. Minert, A.G., Ph.D.:
Whereas most genealogists focus on vital records in cities, counties, and states, extensive study of Protestant church records reveals a much more valuable source for identifying the hometowns of German immigrants. This presentation illustrates insights gained over sixteen years of work in the program entitled German Immigrants in American Church Records. How to access and examine church records are important aspects of this study.
