Description Technical Specs
More Americans have German ancestry than any other ethnic group and German research sources are some of the most detailed and helpful in all of Europe, so what are you waiting for? Most German families can be documented back to the 1600s and this webinar will help you get started. You donít need to speak German or travel to Germany to have wonderful research success. Weíll cover the basics, including the language, records, places and the tools you need to begin your journey to find your German ancestors.

This class was presented to a live webinar (online seminar) audience on June 6, 2012. 1 hour 50 minutes. Plus 4 pages of handouts.

Viewers' comments:
  • A good overview and foundation to start with.
  • A wealth of information. Covers every important topic.
  • An excellent webinar. I have been struggling with my German research and Kory motivated me greatly today. Very informative and I very much like how Kory explained things, easily and very understandable.
  • Awesome amount of information - and I have already attended a 3 day seminar through our local Genealogical Society on researching your German Ancestors.  While I have never purchased a webinar CD on a webinar that I have watched, I will be purchasing this one and watching it over and over again!  Thank you for all the education you provide!
  • Many good research suggestions were offered and the Q & A was informative, too. I especially liked the reference Geoff made about the Centennia Historical Atlas Software.
  • Danke Schoen, Kory! Your presentation was absolutely excellent!! More info than I ever expected, and very professionally done!  I hope LFT asks you to return for other webinars! I won't miss them!
  • Didn't think I had any interest in "Researching Your German Ancestors," but always enjoy these webinars, so I signed up. Whilst I still don't think I have any German ancestors to research, this webinar was so incredibly interesting & entertaining that I am glad I signed up & attended. Still waiting to win my first door prize though.  ;-)
  • Excellent!!! Excellent!!! This session was jam-packed with information. I've enjoyed many webinars in the past, but this is one that I will have to order.
  • This webinar changed my whole perspective on German Genealogy.
  • Most valuable tip was site listing availability of Orrsfamilienbueher.
  • Great information! I have located another ancestor directly from this webinar!
  • I wish I had a Kory Meyerink in my back pocket.
  • Kory Meyerink is a must-watch. So much information, so clearly presented!!!
  • One of the most outstanding webinars yet! I'll be signing up for any future webinars Kory does.
  • This has been the most useful webinar yet for me. Covered a lot of info. I have tried translating info from German records and know it can be accomplished by a novice like myself. This will be the first webinar on cd that I will purchase.
  • Wow!!! Learned several ways to get beyond my brick wall. Please don't ever stop these webinars .... they are invaluable.
