The conference will be held on September 11, 2021 from 9:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.  While this is a Nebraska football  Saturday, kickoff is at 2:30 p.m., so plenty of time to participate in both.  The speaker for the conference is Dr. Roger P. Minert (born in Lincoln), a renowned German genealogy researcher and publisher of note about German records.  The topics will refer to elusive German records from 1816 - 1916, the height of the Prussian Empire.
 
If you would like to learn more, select "Conference Info/Registration" on the left side of this webpage.  You can download the brochure and complete your online registration and pay using PayPal or mail a check.
