The German Interest Group (GIG) is comprised of members and visitors who have an interest in German genealogy and, whose ancestors not only came from Germany itself but also from the old principalities that existed prior to its 1871 unification. Additionally, ethnic Germans have inhabited areas beyond the country’s current borders including places like present-day Poland, Russia and the Alsace-Lorraine region of France.
You are welcome to our meetings whether you are just beginning your family history research or are an expert! We have speakers on all aspects of German genealogy. For more information about our meetings, please visit our Meetings page.
Please consider joining the Eastside Genealogical Society. General and membership information can be found on their website.
