June meeting of the Sacramento German Genealogy Society

The June meeting of the Sacramento German Genealogy Society will be held
Tuesday, June 24, at 1:00 p.m., at St. Marks United Methodist Church on
Lusk Drive at St. Marks Way in Sacramento.

The speaker for the meeting will be Marion Wolfert, A. G., recently returned
from Europe on one of her frequent research trips and fresh with thoughts on
the topic Current Bright Spots in German Family History. Born and raised
in Germany, she is the co-author of German Immigrants: Lists of Passengers
Bound from Bremen (1847-1871) and author of the ongoing project,
Brandenburg Immigration Index. She has spoken to the SGGS membership
several times and always leaves behind a big fan club.

Entrance to the SGGS monthly meetings is free for members. Visitors are
welcome, although it is asked that non-member attendees either join the SGGS
or pay a $5.00 admittance fee when they attend a meeting. The societys only
source of income is membership dues, and the cost of providing its
exceptional programs is quite high.

Guests and members are encouraged to arrive for the meeting by 12:30, to
give themselves time to browse the SGGS informational tables, which feature
German genealogy-related books for sale, pedigree charts and other
genealogical aids, oversized German wall maps, German reference and library
tools, German cards, back issues of the societys quarterly Der
Blumenbaum, and mentors to answer research questions. And there are always
SGGS members who share your interests and are eagerly awaiting a chance to
discuss German genealogy and compare notes on research and families!

If you have questions about the society, e-mail President Charles V.
Knuthson at or call him at (916) 782-5704 or contact
the societys website at www.SacGerGenSoc.org.
