Welcome to the Michigan Germanic Genealogical Society.

We also are in the process of sending our renewal notices out as well as new member notices for any persons who have inquired about membership. If you have not received your notice yet, you may go to the Join Us tab on the main menu and you can print, complete and send it in with money to become a member.

Our regular meeting schedule will be the second Monday of September, November, March and May at 7:30 pm.


Hello IGGP partners and friends, the year-end issue of the Partner Zeitung is now available for download from the IGGP website. (iggp.org)

Please share the newsletter with your members, your websites, mail lists and social media channels. The big news is that registration for the IGGP 2023 hybrid conference opens Jan. 3 with “early-bird” pricing.

I also direct your attention to the information about Librarians Day, IGGP’s first such event with the help of the Allen County Public Library and its Genealogy Center. We urge you to share it with librarians and archivists in your home towns.

Happy New Year!

Dear Members & Friends of GAHF, Happy New Year from all of us at the German-American Heritage Foundation and Museum in Washington, DC!

They are looking for amusing, interesting, informative and even curious tales related to the German-American experience.

  • Image attachments must be jpg, tiff, or png files and have a resolution of 300 dpi
