‘Voyages of Our German Immigrants’ presented Oct. 23
October is Genealogy Month and the Denver Genealogy and History Club is promoting family history by offering a special presentation by professional genealogist Teresa Steinkamp-McMillin. The program is Tuesday, Oct. 23 at 6:30 PM at the Denver Public Library.

Steinkamp-McMillin is from the Chicago area and has recorded several webinars for Ancestry.com. She specializes in German genealogy.

Germans began immigrating to the United States in 1683, according to documented history. Her talk will highlight significant aspects of the first four major waves of migration through 1910. The areas from which they came and the motivations that typified each wave will be detailed. She will discuss how immigration and emigration records help tell the immigrant’s story.

The program will be Skyped in. Program participants will be able to interact and ask Steinkamp-McMillin questions they have about German immigration.

The program is free to attend, however pre-registration is requested to ensure adequate seating. Sign up by calling the Denver Library at 984-5140 or emailing kplatte@denver.lib.ia.us
