We invite any person interested in researching their Germanic heritage to join the German Genealogy Group and share experiences with those who range from beginners to professional genealogists.

We have grown to a membership of over 1000 which includes members not only from all across the United States, but several foreign countries as well. We have grown not only in our membership, but also in our purpose and goals.
We work together in assisting our members find their “roots” by providing help sessions, finding aids, lectures, mentoring, a monthly newsletter, translation services, an extensive CD and book lending library and a forum to meet and discuss research problems and solutions.
We look to promote and encourage an interest in genealogy, educate members, and to help preserve, computerize and make available important and endangered records to be shared by all members of the genealogy community.

Please Help Us, To Help You . . .
While the databases on this web site are free, they are not free to produce. We have to send our volunteers copies of the material that they have to transcribe. We have to pay for postage, envelopes and ink. Thus we need to raise money to continue to produce additional databases. If you would like to see us continue creating these databases, please consider a donation.
Your tax deductible donation can be made payable to the German Genealogy Group.
