The German Interest Group of The Eastside Genealogical Society will meet on Friday, June 1, 2018 from 1 to 3 pm in the Relief Society Room of the LDS Church at 10675 NE 20th St, Bellevue, WA 98004 with doors opening at 12:45 pm for networking.  Visitors are always welcome at our meetings.       

Topic: “How to Find German Records on Family Search Efficiently and Effectively” – Many genealogists use FamilySearch and yet may not realize that they are accessing only a small portion of the records available. Learn several strategies for using FamilySearch to access the 70% of the records not currently indexed.  This means more than 1.33 billion records and 247,000 books not indexed on FamilySearch. The presentation will include step-by-step actions and examples to specifically access German records in the U.S. and Europe.

Speaker: Janet O’Conor Camarata, a member of Eastside Genealogical Society and South King County Genealogical Society, has over 25 years of experience in genealogy. She is an instructor in genealogy at Pierce College, a seminar presenter and trainer in genealogy societies across Washington, who takes advantage of the latest technology and staying mobile with the latest computing tools.
