International Germanic genealogy conference set for July 2017 in Minneapolis
Save the dates July 28-30, 2017 for the first international conference organized by the International German Genealogy Partnership (IGGP). Our society has joined this new and growing international partnership of Germanic societies across America and Europe. Our members receive a special Partnership discount off the regular conference rate. Registration for the conference opens in February, 2017.
The conference theme - "Connections: International, Cultural, Personal" - will shape presentations and personal opportunities for both German genealogy professionals and individual hobbyists.
A block of rooms has been reserved for conference attendees at the Minneapolis Marriott Northwest Hotel. Rooms are available at a special rate. A special reservation phone number and Marriott link are available.
The International German Genealogy Partnership was begun in 2014 by genealogical society leaders in America, Germany and other countries. The purpose is to expand cooperation among societies nationally and internationally for the benefit of the individual members. The 2017 international conference is one of several major Partnership initiatives. Hosting the 2017 Partnership conference is the Minnesota-based Germanic Genealogy Society.
