The Genealogical Society of Santa Cruz County presents a lecture focusing on the great wave of German immigration from 1830 to 1900. Robert Jackson, PhD will outline the resources available to help narrow the search for your ancestors' places of origin. We'll also touch on the special challenges posed by the spelling of German surnames and place names and by the movable feast of German geography in the 19th century. Finally, we'll glance ahead to the main issues involved in accessing archives and records in Germany. Everyone is welcome to join us for this free event in the Downtown meeting room.
