When you begin researching your family’s journey, you begin to uncover amazing stories of hope, faith and determination.

Their stories are amazing!  Get ready to explore YOUR German ancestor’s journey!
 
Presenter:  “Pursuing YOUR Past” lead researcher Sue Schlichting has more than 30 years of research experience.  She grew up just down the road from her German grandparents.  Hearing the stories of the “Old Country” inspired her to take a deep dive into her German roots.  With family coming from Northern Germany, Prussia and Transylvania, Sue has a wealth of experience researching in various parts of the German speaking world.
