German-American Genealogical Partnership

We are pleased to announce a German-American Genealogical Partnership.  
Our goal is to have Germanic Genealogy societies unite in ways that strengthen each individual society and to bring additional benefits to all of our members.  
Please see our German Partnership menu item for additional details.   We will continue to add information as it becomes available.

Cemetery Transcriptions Added to Site

generic grave stoneNew, March 2015
GGS members transcribed eight, primarily German, cemeteries between 1980 and 1990. The books have been in our Library for many years and it seems that most members were not aware that they existed. They have now been scanned and added to this site. The Transcriptions is a sub-menu under the Research Page.

Welcome to Our New Website!

We have been working hard to create a more user-friendly, interactive website for both members and non-members. 
GGS offers information, educational opportunities, publications, and association with others researching German roots.  This includes areas that are outside of the current borders of Germany.
However, GGS does not have records for your specific German ancestors. Our extensive library does include various indexes with individual's names, as well as how-to books and background information on places where your German ancestors may have lived.
Our goal is to help you learn how to find and use records of your German-speaking ancestors.
