Sherri Hessick, PCGS President, will give the annual address: Where We've Been and Where We're Going.
James Beidler will present two lectures.
"German Research Online". Searching for German-speaking ancestors is undergoing a paradigm shift in which the resources of Ancestry, FamilySearch and European-based Genealogy.net are all major players and German church records are being digitized. Learn about the many websites that can help you break down brick walls and find the villages of origin for your ancestors!
"German Immigrant Waves". The 1700s Pennsylvania Germans were a different breed than the German Americans who immigrated in the 1800s. This presentation shows the differences in geography, economic class, religion, and aspirations of – as well as sources about – the two great waves of German immigration.
