We are pleased to welcome Fritz Juengling, Ph.D., AG® as our first GGS Webinar Speaker! He will be speaking about the very important website MeyerGaz.org and how it is has impacted German researchers. A book that has been a critical German research resource, that is difficult for most to read and decipher, has been transformed into a website that makes information quick and at everyone's figure tips and adds some great features.

Also join us in learning about the new FamilySearch forums - there are several that German language researchers will be interested in.

Handouts are provided on the GGS Website for GGS Members who have logged into the website under the Webinars tab. This webinar will be recorded and available in the same location on the website. If you have forgotten your log in information, instructions of how to retrieve it are on the website.

There will be limited attendance for this webinar, so be sure to sign in early to save your "seat."

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email from GGS Webinars containing information about joining the webinar.
