What is FEEFHS?

FEEFHS, or the Foundation of East European Family History Studies, understands itself as a portal to research in Eastern and Southern Europe, including the German territories that are no longer part of the German Empire.


Why Attend a FEEFHS Conference?

Why attend a FEEFHS conference is not a difficult question to answer. To start with, the core conference is a 3-day workshop, filled with three parallel tracks of classes. In addition to that, there are 2-day pre-conference workshops with the goal of enhancing specific research skills.

The presenters are researchers who know what they are talking about since many of them have been performing genealogical research for decades at an advanced level.
