Hello, my name is Dianne Fedderson and I along with Steven Buhrow are the coordinators of the German Genealogy Special Interest Group. We meet the the second Thursday of each month, 9:30-11:50 am in the Reliance Room of the Lake Miona Recreation Center, 1526 Buena Vista Blvd (Map below). If you have a question about this SIG, send me or Steven an email, and we will respond as quickly as we can.
Our goal is to carry forward the educational mission of the VGS in the realm of German-language genealogy, that includes not only the countries of Germany, Austria and Switzerland, but also areas of Eastern Europe with large German ethnic populations. There are several members well versed in many areas of Germanic research both in the U.S. and Europe, who will endeavor to assist other members in solving their research issues.
You must be a member of The Villages Genealogical Society to participate in our meetings. We welcome guests to attend once without charge, but if interested in continuing, they are asked to join the Villages Genealogical Society for the budget-breaking amount of $10.00, with $5.00 yearly renewal thereafter.
