The German SIG meets at the Brewster Ladies Library, Rte 6A, Brewster, on the 1st Tuesday of the month, October through June, from 10 am to 12 noon. We also have a Facebook group. During this time of COVID, we are meeting via email and Zoom.
We welcome anyone interested in learning more about their German ancestors, the history, traditions, and customs of Germany. we research different websites and strategies in Germany, and in the United States, on how to find help in obtaining records and information. We have a five fold mission:
— To explore the political, social, and environmental conditions that existed when and where our ancestors lived, both in Germany and in America
— To understand the decisions made, the paths, trials, and tribulations our ancestors undertook to immigrate to America
— To focus on our specific German families, where they came from in greater Germany and where they went to in America, including named cities/districts, by named families, at specific time periods
— To learn of resources and techniques available to further our study of our German ancestors.
— to organize our research into a story, outline, timeline, Facebook group, blog, or other compilation to share with family, other researchers. or a greater audience.

The DNA SIG usually meets at the Dennis Public Library, 5 Hall Ave, Dennis Port, on the 1st Tuesday of the month, year-round, at 1:30 PM. However, due to the coronavirus, we are currently meeting via Zoom, twelve months of the year, on the same day and time.
Members range from those just beginning their DNA research to “old hands.”
