ISGS News: Upcoming Webinars
Join us on Tuesday, July 9, at 8:00 PM Central as our presenter, James Beidler, shares his experience and knowledge of online German church registers, duplicates & substitutes. James is the author of The Family Tree German Genealogy Guide, a columnist for German Life magazine, the editor of the quarterly journal, Der Kurier, and an editor at Legacy Tree Genealogists.
Online German Church Registers, Duplicates and Substitutes
No genealogist with German-speaking ancestors avoids using church records, and the good news is that many more of them are coming online in digital form. It's important, however, to know whether you're looking at originals, duplicates or extracts from these records – this webinar will explain the differences.
