International Germanic Genealogy Conference  (Conferences-Seminars)
Minneapolis Marriott Northwest Hotel, 7025 Northland Dr. N., Minneapolis, Minnesota
 
One year ago a partnership was created between genealogy societies in the United States and German genealogy societies in Europe.  Just as we are interested in what life was like for our ancestors in Germanic Europe so are Germans interested in what life was like for their ancestors who came to the United States. This partnership has been very successful in its first year and is growing. The name of the new organization is the German American Genealogical Partnership.

One of the Partnership goals is to have a 3-day International German Conference in 2017.  It will be held on Friday, July 28 thru Sunday, July 30.  The German Genealogy Society in Minneapolis volunteered to host it. In 2018 it will be in Germany and in 2019 in California. The conference will be held in the Marriott Conference hotel in a northwest suburb of Minneapolis.
