19th-Century German Genealogy at Club in Newton, CT

On Wednesday October 8, the Genealogy Club of Newtown will be holding it's October meeting. The meeting will be held at the Booth Library in Newtown at 7pm. All are welcome to attend. The speaker for this meeting is Dr. Richard Eppler.

Dr. Richard Eppler, Ph.D in Chemical Engineering and Physics, will speak about 19th century German genealogy and his success in tracing his ancestral line back to Wurtemburg in the early 1800's. Dr. Eppler first became interested in genealogy about thirty years ago. His topic will cover what you can learn here by using census records and vital records. His discussion will include relevant history of the German speaking peoples and how to access German records on the Internet. The program will conclude with how to read German church records written in German script. Time will be allowed for audience questions.

If you have any questions about membership in the Genealogy Club of Newtown, please let me know.
