Crossing Borders, annual convention  (SGGEE- Ger. Gen. in E. Europe)

September 23 @ 9:00 am September 25 @ 1:30 pm

Pacific Time Zone (PT) – Online [English]

For German-speakers in Poland and Ukraine, your ancestors’ journey often occurred in stages. At this weekend convention, speakers will review why Germans would have moved to Galicia, Pommerania, and East Prussia and Lithuania, and why they might have moved on to Poland and Ukraine. We’ll aso have speakers in research in Ukraine and how to expand your research beyond the usual sites. Follow the convention blog for updates as time draws closer to the opening of registration, which is free for all attendees.
