German Webinar March 28th.
Be the first of your German friends to find out all about the German website Genealogy.net also known as Compgen.de. This useful website will be explained on Saturday Mar. 28 in a webinar presented from 9:15 am through 12:15. The following hands-on classes will be taught both in the Family History Library Main floor lab and also broadcast as a webinar:
9:15 Finding and Using German Address Books on Genealogy.net. This class will teach you how to locate these address books and find names and locations of your ancestors.
10:15 Finding and Using German Lineage books (OSB) on Genealogy.net. The Family History Library has many village lineage books in house, but this site has many that are online and can be searches right at home.
What is a village lineage book? It contains the families or individuals from a specific town in Germany and has been organized into families! Find birth, marriage and death dates for ancestors. Village Lineage books are not available for all towns in Germany.
11:15 Using Metasearch on Genealogy.net This class will discuss how to search all the databases available on Genealogy.net simultaneously and tell you what they are about. Some of the databases on this site include the Schleswig-Holstein census, WWI casualty lists, member submitted trees and tombstones.
See if some of your German ancestors can be found on this site to help you grow your family tree!
So come fill our empty chairs on March 28th and get hands-on assistance or watch from home.
