International German Genealogy Conference
Saturday, June 15, 2019 through Monday, June 17, 2019
International German Genealogy Conference  (Conferences - National)
Hyatt Regency Hotel, Sacramento, California
Registration opens November 1, 2018.
Beginning on Saturday, June 15, 2019, Sacramento will host the second international conference of the International German Genealogy Partnership (IGGP). More than 700 people are expected to attend the conference to focus on the history and genealogy of those with German ancestry, wherever they live in the world.
The conference there, STRIKE IT RICH! with Connections 2 Discoveries, follows on the Connections theme of the 2017 inaugural conference.
The "gold" theme is especially appropriate given Sacramento history. John Sutter, born as Johann August Sutter in Baden, in what is southwestern Germany, eventually settled in Sacramento Valley and built a sawmill where gold was found in 1848. That discovery set off the California Gold Rush.
The 2019 IGGP International Conference, to be held in downtown Sacramento at the Hyatt Regency Hotel, will offer three days of German-centric presentations in multiple tracks –Geographic, Technology, Advancing Your Research, and more. Attendees will learn from genealogists, authors, historians, and archivists who are top presenters with advanced proficiency in their fields of study. It’s a sure bet that more than one visitor will shout “EUREKA!” upon learning something that breaks through a brick wall or offers new understanding of their family’s history – German and non-German researchers alike.
