14 Oct Family History Hounds
The Family History Hounds genealogy group will meet Thursday, November 4 at 1:00pm in the McMillan Meeting Room. Our topic:
- “The Germany the ‘Forty-Eighters’ Left Behind: Roots of Mid-Nineteenth Century German Emigration”
We’re pleased to welcome one of our Family History Hounds as our November speaker. David Jackson has done extensive research in German history, and will talk with us on German emigration. Have you ever wondered why so many Germans immigrated to America in the mid-1800s? The failed Revolution of 1848 propelled many “Forty-Eighters” to the United States, but they were part of a much larger wave of German Immigrants. What developments and events lay behind life-changing decisions to emigrate to a new continent? We will find out with this presentation.
