Serious Nonsense: Groundhog Lodges, Versammlinge, and Pennsylvania German Heritage
12:00 pm to 1:00 pm
Eastern Time Zone (ET) - Online & in-person [English]

Learn about the origins of Groundhog Lodges and Versammlinge, occasions when Pennsylvania Germans gather to speak their language and celebrate their culture. These meetings, begun in the 1930s, continue to the present.  Many of the activities and humor are rooted in broader American folk and performative traditions that are spun into Pennsylvania German experience.  And the Groundhog Lodges feature one Pennsylvania German tradition that has become familiar in popular culture: groundhog weather prognostication. Presented by William Donner.

Registration required for this online and virtual event: email info@schwenkfelder.org. The Schwenkfelder Library & Heritage Center is located at105 Seminary St., Pennsburg, PA 18073.

Guide to Reading Old German Cursive
10:00 am to 11:30 am
Eastern Time Zone (ET) - In-person

In-person workshop for adults on five consecutive Saturdays: Feb. 5, 12, 19, 26 and March 5.

From the 1400s to the 1900s, letters were written in the old-fashion cursive handwriting in German-speaking Europe and North America. Learning how to read authentic, original documents can be helpful to people interested in the history of Germanic languages, German history, family history, Schwenckfeld and Schwenkfelder history, German literature, or just out of curiosity. These interactive group workshops are led by Allen Viehmeyer, the Associate Director of Research, and use workbooks he has designed. Materials distributed include photos of original documents in our collections. A basic knowledge of German is not necessary but can be helpful.

Registration is required by emailing allen@schwenkfelder.org before Friday, Jan. 28, 2022. $115 for workshop and materials. The Schwenkfelder Library & Heritage Center is located at105 Seminary St., Pennsburg, PA 18073.
