Convention Update
Please see updated information regarding the annual meeting in Minneapolis, MN this year.


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.


Volhynian Archives Indexes from 1900-1918
Volhynian Archives Indexes from 1900-1918 are now available in the Members Only section and are listed at the bottom of the Jump Start column.  These Indexes are from records which are in the Zhytomyr Oblast Archives and are not available online.  The records represent entries covering Lutheran births, deaths and marriages over the period from 1900 to approximately 1918.
