2017 International Germanic Genealogy Conference
Sponsor: German-American Genealogical Partnership
Host: Germanic Genealogy Society
Location: Minneapolis Marriott Northwest Hotel, Brooklyn Park, a suburb of Minneapolis, Minn.

Save the dates July 28-30, 2017, for the first international conference organized by the German-American Genealogical Partnership.

“For anyone involved in researching Germanic ancestors, this is a rare opportunity to make personal connections with people from the United States, Germany and other countries. We especially encourage members and leaders of societies in the Partnership to join us in this inaugural international conference,” said Kent Cutkomp, one of the key founders of the Partnership and a past president of the Minnesota-based Germanic Genealogy Society, host of the 2017 conference.

The conference—“CONNECTIONS: International. Cultural. Personal.”—will offer more than 30 presentations by Germanic genealogy experts worldwide. Attendees will be invited to be part of a conference surname and locality database to match up with others attending, Cutkomp said. Study rooms with computers and expert personal assistance will offer help with German script, language and research. The conference also will feature impromptu gatherings by region or special interest and a large field of vendors and exhibitors.

The conference is scheduled at the Minneapolis Marriott Northwest Hotel, in Brooklyn Park, a Minneapolis suburb. Attendees may book room reservations at the hotel beginning in August. Registration for the conference opens in January 2017.

The Partnership, founded in 2015, joins Germanic societies across America, Germany, Canada, England and other European countries, and continues to draw new societies worldwide. Partnership members include the more than 60 societies belonging to the Germany-based Deutsche Arbeitsgemeinschaft Genealogischer Verbände, whose leadership helped in founding the Partnership.
