Durham Region OGS Meeting: Seeking Your German Ancestors

NOTE  Meeting Location for June 1st
Kingsview United Church - 505 Adelaide Ave. East - SW corner of Adelaide and Wilson - Oshawa -

7:30 p.m.  Tuesday,  June 1
Seeking German Ancestors
Speaker: Eileen Wilson

Eileen will discuss genealogical research in Germany and the former Austro-Hungarian Empire, focusing on the geographical changes in those areas  of Europe that make research more difficult. 
In 1867, the Austrian House of Hapsburg agreed with the Kingdom of Hungary to jointly rule their respective territories. This Dual Monarchy lasted for 51 years.  Research difficulties arose from the extensive national boundary changes after World War One.

URGENT:  We need new volunteers to serve refreshments.
