Hopping the Pond : Researching in Germany : What You Need to Know and Websites to Help
On November 7, Carol Carman will present a general background on Germans in this country and what you need to know before you begin your research in Germany. Join us at Anne Arundel Community College, Florestano Building, Room 218, where Carol will give you tips on how to find your ancestors' German town of origin, and websites and other information sources you can explore once you have found it.

She has been to Germany three times, twice including researching her ancestors. She has both first and second wave German ancestors who immigrated to the U.S. in the early 1700s and mid-1800s. Carol is also the president of Anne Arundel Genealogy Society, and a retired librarian.
