Ahnenforscher Stammtisch Unna

Oldenburgische Gesellschaft für Familienkunde e.V.


Although they have the city name “Unna” in our name, they do not deal with Unna local research, but they are a meeting point for genealogists – beginners and advanced – from all over the world, whose ancestors came from Germany and the former German eastern areas.

They are all passionate amateur genealogists who meet  online  to support each other in their family history research through mutual help, information exchange and knowledge sharing.

The regulars’ table is not a club and there is no membership or other obligation! Therefore there is no fixed group of members and no board! The Unna genealogist regulars’ table always consists of the group of people who are currently taking part in a meeting . An organizational team takes care of the organization and management of our events. 

Everything that the genealogist Stammtisch Unna organizes and all interaction between the organizers, the speakers and the participants takes place on a purely private basis!

Online community of genealogists


The genealogist Stammtisch Unna was founded in January 2001 in Unna, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany, to offer genealogists a non-associative private meeting place where they can experience the fascinating hobby of genealogy together for free without any obligation or membership!

Since April 2020, we have been an online genealogist regulars’ table that enables participation in our online events via the web meeting platform “Zoom”, no matter where you live in the world!

At our online meetings, we generally address each other as “you” and by your first name, regardless of whether you are attending for the first time or have been taking part in the meetings for many years. We don’t have distant “researcher colleagues”, but rather “researcher friends” from all over the world and this is how we create our well-known positive, relaxed, warm and familiar atmosphere.

Leveraging the knowledge of more experienced genealogists

Genealogists who have been practicing this fascinating hobby for a long time have gained a lot of experience and a lot of knowledge. This knowledge can guide you on the right and successful path to researching your family history.

Do you have questions about your genealogy research? Can’t read a document? Do you need tips for making progress in your research?

The  genealogist regulars’ table Unna online night  following our online events will continue in a relaxed manner from around 9 p.m. in the same Zoom meeting room. Then you can ask your questions and, of course, take advantage of the help of more experienced genealogists free of charge and without membership.


Free. No membership or association or event fees. All programs are free


All benefits are freely available to all interested parties as there is no membership charge:
