Silesia or Schlesien? Which is it? It’s BOTH! (German track)

This former Prussian province exchanged many monarchal hands over the centuries. Come and see what useful online resources are available to discover your Austrian, Polish and Prussian Silesian ancestors. You don’t have to have Silesian ancestors to learn a few new research skills.


Facebook or FamilySearch Communities? Stumped on how social media may be a benefit to your German research? (German track)

This class will focus on the differences between these two resources, and how to get the most out of both using social media platforms to solve German research puzzles.
