Uniting German Genealogy Researchers

The International German Genealogy Partnership.

The IGGP proudly presents its new website.

The foundation stone for the new site was laid two years ago, when the design by a company in Germany was approved by the IGGP board. It’s been under construction for more than a year as the IGGP tech team began copying data from our old website and building pages on the new site, which is now powered by WordPress and the DIVI theme.

We hope you like the new design and functions of the website. We look forward to your feedback. Email info@iggp.org.

Many thanks for the intensive effort to create the new website go to our volunteers:

  • Paul Roltsch
  • Axel Schwartz
  • Dieter Böök
  • Edie Adam
  • Timo Kracke

    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.
