Understanding the History of Pomerania and How to Research Your Pomeranian Ancestors  (SGGS Meetings and Events)
10:00 am
Presented by Dr. Klaus-D. Kohrt:
Learn how to find where your ancestors lived, which records have survived and where to find them both in archives and online. This seminar will begin by summarizing the history of “1000 years of Pomerania”. In addition, it covers the tools provided via the website of the Pommerscher Greif and how they will lead you to sources in various archives and demonstrate what and where to find on the internet or how to contact organizations holding the original records. The focus of the presentation will be on (protestant) church books and civil registers and explain the organizational structures of the protestant church and the civil administration in Pomerania until 1945.
