Welcome to the Michigan Germanic Genealogical Society.

The scheduled March 15, 2020 meeting of the Michigan Germanic Genealogical Society is cancelled.  The board thought that it would be best to cancel the upcoming meeting because of the health concerns that are related to the novel Coronavirus having been found in Michigan. We will not reschedule until the situation appears to be abating. We hope that we will be able to resume our meetings in May, but that will depend on how the epidemic progresses.  We are taking this action out of an abundance of caution and concern for our member’s health.  Please stay safe and follow any guidelines that your local health department issues.

Our next meeting is March 15, 2020.
  • Where: Room 1A, St. Joseph Mercy Hospital Campus, 5320 McAuley Dr, Ypsilanti, MI
  • Time: 1:30 pm
  • Speaker: Mike Gerding
  • Program: A “Little” Search for Stewart

Join us as we journey down a surprising path through German ancestors to find the connection to a DNA cousin. Mike uses a combination of genetic genealogy and conventional methods to unravel the answer.

Mike Gerding is a member of the Genealogical Society of Washtenaw County (GSWC) and has made presentations to their DNA Special Interest Group. He will also be presenting at the GSWC General Meeting on March 22.

Room 1A, St. Joseph Mercy Hospital Campus, 5320 McAuley Dr, Ypsilanti, MI. The room is on the second floor of the Women’s Health Center. Park in Lot M or S.
