Event Description

Concordia University Libraries and The Friends of the Center for Volga German Studies are preparing another workshop to provide you with more resources to research and learn about your Volga German heritage! The workshop will be held on the campus of Concordia University on Saturday, November 2, 2019, 9:00am – 4:00pm. The Center will be open on Sunday, November 3, 2019, noon – 3pm for participants who wish to access the Center’s resources for their specific research. CVGS volunteers will be available for assistance during that time.

Conference registration will be $70, which includes a continental breakfast, lunch and snacks. Proceeds from the conference will be used to defray costs of purchasing translations of census and church records, as well as other related publications.

The agenda for the conference will include presentations about various aspects of genealogical research and a review of the resources available at the Center for Volga German Studies. Speakers for this event include Maggie Hein, Marilyn Schunke, & Steve Schreiber. We also hope to have a member of the CU library staff participate in the workshop to lead a discussion about using the new website and library catalog to find relevant materials for your research.

Look for specific conference information and the on-line registration link coming early fall to your e-mail inbox and on the Friends of the CVGS Facebook page!
