Untangle the Web of German Websites presented by Teresa McMillin

Teresa Steinkamp McMillin will be presenting Untangle the Web of German Websites. The internet is offering more and more quality information for German researchers. Her presentation will focus on collections of free digitized German materials and indexes available on the internet. Most websites presented are based in Germany,so tips and tricks for navigating them will be included. Ms. McMillin will help you expand beyond church records for your German research.
