Family History Month: Making Sense of Old German

Main (Oakland)

Ever wondered why old German handwriting and printing are so particularly challenging? German has some unique reasons that make deciphering and understanding it an extra challenge….and extra frustrating for people researching German family history and genealogy. Join Pamela Israel and Stefan Israel from Unlock Your History as they dig into a bit of history and some tips for deciphering those old letters, birth certificates and more.

This session is free and open to the public.
