Oldenburgische Gesellschaft für Familienkunde e.V.


The German Genealogy Group is a Dallas Genealogical Society Special Interest Group. 

The focus of this group is migrants who immigrated from German-speaking areas of Europe to various parts of the US from the 1700s to the 1900s. Knowledge of the German language is not required: Our goal is to help guide your research in locating records and provide resources for translating the records. The group is a special interest group of the Dallas Genealogical Society and is freely open to all.

Genealogical Society – Special Interest Group


The Dallas Genealogical Society is a non-profit tax exempt Section 501(c)(3) organization that provides resources and services of interest to family history researchers in (or with an interest in) Dallas and North Texas. We partner with the Genealogy & History Division of the Dallas Public Library to provide services and educational activities that cultivate and nurture an interest in Family History Research.

We are committed to education, service, preservation, and keeping abreast of new developments in genealogical resources, technology, and information providers while pursuing these primary goals:

  1. Educate by creating, fostering, and maintaining interest in Genealogy and Family History.
  2. Assist and support the Genealogy & History Division of the J. Erik Jonsson Central Library in Dallas, Texas.
  3. Collect, preserve, copy, and index information relating to Dallas County and its early history.
