International German Genealogy Partnership

Biergarten Event

Start making Connections at our opening social Thursday night at the Germanic American Institute (GAI) located in St. Paul. The evening will include bus shuttle to and from the conference hotel and a German meal consisting of a Bratwurst dinner platter with tasty side dishes. Beer and soft drinks will be available. A strolling accordion player will be part of the festivities.
 
We highly recommend using the buses because of the long drive in rush hour, and because parking is very limited at the GAI. Some who drive may need to park several blocks away and walk.
 
The Biergarten event is scheduled from 6 pm to 9 pm Thursday, July 27.
