Germans in Poland in the 1930s, a calendar for 2017.
SGGEE and the family of German photographer and editor Ernst Stewner have collaborated on a calendar for 2017. Each month displays an archival quality photo of our ancestors living and working in Poland in the years between the two world wars. You can read more details and order your copy from a limited supply by visiting the SGGEE website page at https://www.sggee.org/other/stewner_calendar.html.


June 2016 Journal
In this issue of the SGGEE Journal, you’ll find Part 1 of Bill Remus’ article entitled “A Short Guide to Catholic and Lutheran Birth Records of Germans in Poland and the Ukraine”. In this article, Bill explains the history of the region and its impact on your ability to find records of your ancestors. Gary Warner, who manages the SGGEE databases, provides the results of a merge done with the Master Pedigree Database (MPD) done on Amanda Keinlen’s behalf and the information that was returned to her. The cover of this quarter’s Journal is one of the pictures from the Ernst Stewner calendar project. The details of purchase of the calendars is provided in the Editor’s Notes on Page 3. The financial results of the 2015/2016 financial reporting period are provided for your review prior to the Annual General Meeting being held in Calgary from July 29 – 31.
