The Immigrant Genealogical Society and New Resources for German-American Research
Speaker: Gordon Seyffert

Gordon Seyffert is the vice president and editor of the Immigrant Genealogical Society in Burbank, CA. He began genealogy as his hobby starting in 1975, upon the death of his grandmother and his receipt of some news clippings concerning his great-grandfather. At first he was content merely to research his heritage in America, but eventually he realized that he no longer could ignore European research. Some two decades ago he began to teach himself the old German script so that he could see for himself how and where his German ancestors had lived. Since moving to California four years ago he has made it his personal challenge to convince others to follow his example, and ?Research Beyond One?s Comfort Zone.? Come hear his views on where Germanic research is now headed, as well as case studies of German research problems.

Workshop following the lecture:
Family History Research in Mexico

25th Anniversary Celebration

Carrboro, North Carolina

Join us for our 25th Anniversary Celebration this October 2015! D-OGS was started in 1989. Our mission was to establish a genealogical community dedicated to the research and preservation of family history of Durham and Orange Counties. Providing research assistance and educational opportunities to our members and the public through outreach programs, monthly meetings, newsletters, and a journal were also critical elements of our mission and are still being carried out today.

Join us to celebrate the highlights of our Society and its members! Hope to see you there!
