December 2016 SGGEE Journal
The December 2016 issue of the SGGEE Journal is now posted in the Members’ area of the website. In this issue you’ll find Karl Krueger’s story of his father’s adventures following World War II as he tried to bring his family to the West. Our second article is provided by Peter von Pazatka Lipinsky regarding his personal experience in finding information on the Volhynian village where his wife grew up. Dr. Fritz Juengling writes about the new changes to the online Meyer’s Gazetteer and the enhanced search ability to enhance your family research. Edie Adam has provided additional locations for lodging during the 2017 convention to be held in July in Minneapolis. The convention hotel is sold out so if you plan on attending, you will need to make alternate arrangements.
