Leadership Day for Partners prior to Conference

Many of our Partner Representatives were able to gather before the conference began for a Leadership Day led by Bill Cole of the Sacramento German Genealogy Society and co-chair of the International Germanic Genealogy Conference. It was wonderful to meet in person for the first time. Goals were agree upon and enthusiasm for working together was strong. What a wonderful group of people united in promoting and supporting German Genealogy Worldwide.

Partners Unite at RootsTech 2017!

2017 has already begun to see connections made between partner organizations withing the Internation German Genealogy Partnership.  Two highlights have been our presence at two well attended events.  One in the United States and one in Germany.
In February, several Partner representatives from 5 different organizations met and ran a booth at RootsTech, an extremely large genealogy conference held in Salt Lake City.

Every time Dirk Weissleder gave a talk, our booth would be flooded.  It was wonderful to talk to so many people about their German heritage where ever they were found in the world.

The partnership is a network to share ideas, contacts, research information and resources to help our members trace their Germanic heritage wherever it is found.


“Uniting German Genealogy Researchers Worldwide” is our goal.


The IGGP facilitates German genealogy research globally as the internationally recognized federation of German genealogy organizations. IGGP was formerly known as German-American Genealogical Partnership (GAGP).
