Special Speaker: Astrid Adler, "Our Ancestors Were German"  (Immigrant Genealogical Society)
1:00 pm
Immigrant Genealogical Library, 1310 W. Magnolia Blvd., Burbank, California
The Immigrant Genealogical is hosting researcher, author and lecturer Astrid Adler (from Tiefenort, Thuringia, Germany), who will present her newest book, "Our Ancestors Were German" on May 13 2017 & May 16 2017.
 
Location – Immigrant Genealogical Library, 1310 W. Magnolia Blvd., Burbank, CA (parking available behind library )
 
"Our Ancestors Were German" looks at emigration in the 19th century out of the Grand Duchy of Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach, but from the perspective of American readers. Her first book, "Vergessene Menschen" (Forgotten People), presented the same topic for German readers. But the same people are the subject.
 
In the 19th century nearly six million Germans left their homes for other lands, and most would never see Germany again. What were their stories? Our speaker has spent years looking into passenger lists, censuses, emigration documents, family letters, and family trees from her home region. She explains what it was like to make this journey -- leaving home, crossing an ocean, arriving and then settling in America.
 
We'll have a very informal reception for our speaker beginning at Noon on the 13th, and 6 p.m. on the 16th.
On the 13th her talk will begin at 1 p.m., while on the 16th it begins a 7 p.m.
