What does that say? Translating German Documents
Tuesday, August 10
What does that say? Translating German Documents  (Membership Meetings)
6:30 pm to 8:00 pm
Zoom/Virtual
Do you have German ancestry, but don't remember much from your high school German class? Maybe you don't know any German, but have a number of family documents written in the language. Ryan Owens, a 2020 University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign graduate with a Master's in Germanic Studies, will cover some common German translations and will break down a document translation for us in real time. Ryan specializes in transcribing older German script and letters and offers this service to genealogists and family historians.

Visiting repositories is an essential part of genealogical research. Local Family History Centers are an extension of the main Family History Library in Utah and can offer a variety of useful resources. Equipped with microfilm readers and computers, several different types of record sets can be explored. The local center in Champaign houses several family history books and has subscriptions to many of the popular genealogy websites. Robert Pike of the Champaign Illinois Family History Center will cover what these centers can offer as well as what a researcher may be able to access on Familysearch.org while visiting.
