Comanches, Captives, Germans: Transactions on the Texas Frontier, 1847
Comanches, Captives, Germans: Transactions on the Texas Frontier, 1847  (Webinar)
Thursday, February 9
6:00 pm
Central Time Zone (CT) - Online [English]
In 2021, three finely worked sketches dating back to the middle of the nineteenth century were brought to the attention of scholars studying the relationship between German settlers and Comanche Indians. Seemingly the work of one artist, and (with one exception) never published, the drawings provide a detailed and unique view of encounters between Germans and Comanches in the Texas Hill Country. Two of them depict the dramatic transfer of a captive girl from the Comanches to the Germans. Who was the girl? Who were the Comanches involved? Who were the Germans? Where and when did this exchange take place? What do we make of the rich Indian and German cultural details that the artist includes? And, of course, who was the artist, and how important is his work? Trying to find answers to these questions, the presenters will examine the drawings in detail and decode information placed by the artist.
 
Free and open to the public, but registration is required. Email Antje Petty to receive a Zoom link, which will be sent the day before the event.

Using 19th Century Civil Records in French Departmental Archives
Using 19th Century Civil Records in French Departmental Archives  (Mid-Atlantic Germanic Society)
Friday, April 21
1:00 pm to 4:00 pm
Eastern Time Zone (ET) - In-person [English]
Many German-speaking immigrants originally came from the Alsace-Lorraine region of France, which at various times in history was incorporated into Germany. MAGS member Bob Greiner will discuss the history behind the civil records and review other topics required to locate and interpret the records. He will demonstrate how to access these records on the French departmental archives websites. Using several examples, attendees will have the opportunity to access these free sites and search for records themselves.
 
The conference room at the Maritime Institute of Technology, Linthicum Heights, Maryland, will have good Internet connectivity. Please bring your own device so you can learn how to access these records yourself. You will require at least a tablet or laptop, but you will have a much better experience with a laptop.

MAGS Spring Virtual Conference  (Conference)
MAGS Spring Virtual Conference  (Conference)  (Mid-Atlantic Germanic Society)
Saturday, April 22
10:00 am to 4:00 pm
Eastern Time Zone (ET) - Online [English]
Featuring Gail Shaffer Blankenau, an experienced genealogist, speaker and author. 
 
Beyond the Bauer [Farmer]: Your German Ancestor’s Place in the Social Structure.” Was your Germanic ancestor engaged in agriculture? German farmers had their own social scale with farms of various sizes and pursuits. We will explore the important social hierarchies to which your farm ancestors belonged and discuss regional terminology that can help you to understand their farming experience.
 
Peopling the Prairie: Germans in America’s Heartland.” We will explore the peoples who undertook a great migration into the heart of America from frontier days into the 20th  century. Using case studies, the stories from a diverse group of families will bring new perspectives to our understanding of how people came to inhabit the Great Plains area.
 
Unexpected Union – a Tale of Two Soldiers in the Great War.” Gail will explore the experiences of two men — one American and one German—who fought in the infantry on opposite sides of what George F. Kennan called “the seminal catastrophe of the twentieth century,” their families merging some seventy years later in America’s heartland.
 
Find Your Roots in German Farm Histories.” For many with Germanic heritage, the history of the farm is the history of the family. Learn about farm histories, what they are and what might be in them. We will also discuss resources, websites and keywords to help in locating farm histories. Case studies will show how research in American can lead you “back to the farm” in Germany.
