Southwest Florida Germanic Genealogy Society

The Southwest Florida Germanic Genealogy Society was organized just a couple of years ago. They are, however, already a major, growing organization here in Florida. The organization is hosting an impressive all-day seminar on Saturday, 28 February 2009, in Port Charlotte, Florida, that is already drawing a great deal of attention!

Baerbel Johnson, a professional genealogist and an International Reference Consultant at the Family History Library in Salt lake City, Utah, will present an all-day program, "Putting the Flesh on the Genealogical Skeleton." Ms. Johnson is one of the most respected genealogists at the Family History Library, and this is her first speaking appearance in Florida.

This is an exciting opportunity for anyone with German ancestors! More information and registration details are available at http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~flggrg/.
