Our History

The creation of the International German Genealogy Partnership grew from a desire to make a connection between societies in the United States and German-speaking areas. A few conversations in 2014 brought about the current partnership that includes more than 100 organizations with thousands of members.

Die Gründung der International German Genealogy Partnership entstand aus dem Wunsch heraus, eine Verbindung zwischen genealogischen Organisationen in den Vereinigten Staaten und solchen in deutschsprachigen Gebieten herzustellen. Ein paar Gespräche im Jahr 2014 führten zu der aktuellen Partnerschaft, die über 100 Organisationen und Tausende von Mitgliedern umfasst.
