Master Pedigree Database Update
The Master Pedigree Database (MPD) has been updated on March 28, 2016. The number of apparent individuals continues to decline as more merges are made. Locations in the US and Canada are standardized up to the letter P while those in Europe will remain a work in progress for some time.


March 2016 Journal
In this issue of the SGGEE Journal, we provide a report of the first International Conference held in Lutsk, Ukraine in October 2015 that dealt with the life and times of the Germans in Volhynia. Karl Krueger provides an article on the Lublin database, the information contained therein, and how to retrieve the data. SGGEE and the family of Ernst Stewner are partnering on the publication of Ernst’s Volhynian photo collection in a 2017 calendar. In the Journal we discuss the history of Ernst’s work and the plans for the calendar. Finally, the 2016 convention is moving forward with plans to hold it in Calgary at the end of July and we have included the convention information for your perusal.
