For those of you that don't get the SGGEE newsletter, the Society for 
German Genealogy in Eastern Europe is pleased to announce the date and 
location of its next convention.

DATES:  August 5-8, 2004

PLACE:  Coast Plaza Hotel, Calgary, Alberta

THEME:   "A Road Less Traveled"

     Some genealogical researchers have a relatively simple task.  They 
trace their ancestry to a small area of England and within short order can 
trace their ancestry back several hundred years.  Our research path is a 
"Road Less Traveled", all thanks to the road much traveled by our ancestors 
through east central Europe.  We must cope with vast distances, numerous 
languages, and many political systems which change through both distance 
and time.  Please join us as we take you on a virtual genealogical journey 
in the search of your ancestors.  From packing your bags with basic 
research principals through detailed planning and technical research, and 
on to modern day visits to the Heimatland - using a research room, 
speakers, and workshops - our convention will guide you through the process 
of finding your ancestors.  Who knows - you may even experience some ethnic 
food along the way.  And while our focus will be the Germans who lived in 
Russian Poland and Volhynia, you will probably also find clues to 
researching other nearby areas as well.

     Further convention details will be published as they develop on the 
SGGEE web site, the Journal and this Electronic newsletter and other media 
routes  Watch for convention registration forms and other information in 
those locations as well.  Don't miss this convention, it promises to be the 
best ever!!
