Tutorial on German Family Tree

For the past several months I have been reviewing, “on line tutorials” about genealogy to show at our monthly meetings of the Clarkston Area Genealogy Society.

One of the tutorial I reviewed was this Crista Cowan presentation about German Family History Research where she talks about three web sites.

Below is the title, length of time (24:42), published date and link to the Crista presentation.

Below you will also find the three web site names, screen print and links that Crista talks about.

I hope this will be of help to those of you who have German family trees. The links above also will get you to other items on the web pages which might be useful for other family tree research.

Thank You.

Retired General Motors designer who now works on subjects dealing with genealogy. I create trees using items I find in old Google News Archive newspapers and I contact other tree owners notifying them about the news item concerning their relative and send them a link to the tree I created. I post a screen print of the news item on the tree for others to copy, so that my work will benefit others. Occasionally, I will post about the tree I created or the item that I found, always with a "how to" in-bedded in the post. I want my blog posts to help others with their family trees or with their genealogy experiences.
