CONNECTIONS: International, Cultural, Personal

SGGEE has partnered with a new organization focused on Germanic genealogy, which is putting on its first convention next year. You'll have a choice of many different programs and other events, and the opportunity to plug into an international network of people with expertise and interest in German genealogy.

The German-American Genealogical Partnership has announced that due to great interest, the conference has been extended to three days (Fri-Sat-Sun) July 28 - 30, 2017. And hotel reservations for a block of special-rate rooms are now open. You're advised to book early! You can call the special room reservation line at (877) 303-1681 and mention Germanic Genealogy Conference, or reserve online at http://tinyurl.com/HLUWQQJ.

Registration for the conference will open in early 2017.
