IMPORTANT: 2020 Annual General Meeting in Calgary
As previously noted, SGGEE will be holding its Annual General Meeting in September in Calgary. That meeting will be in-person. In previous years, SGGEE has printed a paper proxy form in the Journal, which was then returned via postal mail. This year, we need as many of our members as possible to complete and return a proxy since physical attendance will be limited. Please review the electronic proxy provided on the link above. If you assign your proxy to the secretary as suggested, you're done in a couple clicks, including the submit button! For those who want to do more, read through the instructions and make your selections. The deadline to submit is FRIDAY, SEPT. 18, 2020. Remember that only current-year members may submit a proxy.

2020 Convention in Portland, OR Canceled
The Society for German Genealogy in Eastern Europe is announcing the cancellation of its annual convention, scheduled for late July in Portland, Oregon. This decision is taken to help preserve the health of those who were planning to attend. As an international society, we also recognize that traveling into the United States may continue to be restricted, and even U.S. residents may find travel this summer to be difficult. More details are provided on our Convention News page .

Rozyszcze Project Update
As of May 2020, the Volhynia-Kiev-Podolia (VKP) databases list more than 160,000 birth, confirmation, marriage, and death events which include clickable links to online scans of the records. The data is extracted from Volhynia parish register books held by Archiwum Główne Akt Dawnych (AGAD) in Warsaw. More than 90% of the data is from Rozyszcze Lutheran parish with the rest from Wladimir-Wolynsk and Lutzk parishes plus 10 kantorates near Rowno and Tutschin. The dates completed so far extend from 1862 to 1935. This is an ongoing project with the goal to extract all available records, some of which go to as late as 1937. To initiate a search, go to the public databases page.
