2021 IGGP Conference goes virtual

IGGP Virtual Conference - July 17 to July 24, 2021!!
 
“Researching Together Worldwide / Weltweit Gemeinsam Forschen”
 
The International German Genealogy Partnership is thrilled to announce that the 2021 International German Genealogy Conference, previously cancelled as an in-person event due to the COVID-19 pandemic, will now be held virtually from 17 July to 24 July 2021 with the theme of “Researching Together Worldwide / Weltweit Gemeinsam Forschen”. This new format will allow both passionate genealogists and expert speakers from around the world – including many from our partner organizations in Germany – to attend and participate. Will you be one of them?
 
This unique virtual conference is a must-attend event for anyone researching the lives of their German ancestors. Four live sessions from top-tier speakers will be held each Saturday, and several types of package registration deals (including the live sessions, sponsored sessions and either some or all of several dozen prerecorded sessions) will be available for you to watch at your convenience. Whether you are brand new to the genealogy world or a seasoned family history professional, this information-filled event will offer the classes you need to enhance your genealogy skills.
 
An online sponsor and exhibitor hall is planned to coordinate with the week of the conference and “Connections” breakout sessions will be held to bring together small groups with similar German genealogy or cultural affinities.
 
 
To stay up-to-date on conference news, be sure to sign-up for the IGGP conference newsletter.
 
Registration will open in January, and an “Early Bird Special” price will be valid for all registrants until 31 March. Conference information and registration will be available here soon.

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.
 

Welcome to Our Website!

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).
