*********************************************
Rarely do we find a speaker who can give us information on how to do research in France and Germany. Luckily we were talking to Bob Hoffer, one of our new genealogy members, about the research he has done in that area. We talked him into coming and sharing his knowledge with us!

Over the past years Bob has made research trips to Alsace, France, learning this region had gone back and forth between Germany and France – today it is in France. On one trip he was in his father’s birth place gathering materials, the City Clerk told him about an interesting Internet website and database.

Bob will demonstrate how to use the web tools to retrieve and study these thousands of records in the database, some of which are in German, but most in French and Latin.

Join us at 6:30pm on Thursday, June 12th at the Peoria Public Library North Branch—3001 W. Grand Pkwy. Public always welcomed.
