Wendish Genealogical Research
Tuesday, May 25
Wendish Genealogical Research  (Sacramento German Gen. Soc.)
1:00 pm
Pacific Time Zone (PT) - Online [English]
Milan Pohontsch will present a webinar on "Wendish Genealogical Research." Mr. Pohontsch is a native German and Wend at the same time. The Wends are a European Slavic minority, more commonly known as the Sorbians (not to be confused with the Serbians).  In general, Wendish genealogical research is a lot like German research, just with a few additional language-specific add-ons. The class will mainly concentrate on these add-ons. Therefore, listeners who already know the basics of German research will easily absorb the additional peculiarities of Wendish research. Taught will be topics like Wendish history, record sources, important genealogical publications, dealing with Wendish names and towns, and some grammar that will help to decipher a Wendish record correctly.
