Today was German research, with Dirk Weissleder presenting four informative talks. I have German ancestors and the information Dirk gave, will help me go further with my research. Giving us the German words for the different records will be very useful.
|Dirk is the President of the Federation of Family Associations. He is also a genealogy consultant and national chairman of the Deutsche Arbeisgemeinschaft genealogischer Verbande www.dagv.org This society is the umbrella organisation for genealogy and heraldry for Germany.|
Kerry Farmer gave a great talk on DNA. I have heard Kerry give similar talks but today it started to sink in. While I don't know how many connections I will find, I'm am going to try another company and compare my results and maybe make a connection.
Rosemary Kopittke gave a presentation about My Heritage. I haven't look at this site but it sounds interesting.
It was good to catch up with friends and browse the stalls. I added to my collection of books.
Momento photo books. They are stunning.
Sylvia from Families In British India Society.
Heather from SAG. Heather also presented a talk on what the society holds for European research.
It was a wonderful day and I'll do it all again, tomorrow, when Chris Paton talks about Scottish and Irish research.
Bye for now,
