 Agreement of Germanic Genealogy Organizations
In Partnership with One Another
                                          
Foundation
 
The President of the Germanic Genealogy Society (GGS), Mrs. Kim Ashford from Minnetonka, Minnesota, affiliate Chairman of the Pommern Regional Group of Minnesota (PRG) James Neuenfeldt  from Cottage Grove, Minnesota and the National Chairman of the Deutsche Arbeitsgemeinschaft genealogischer Verbände (DAGV), Dirk Weissleder from Laatzen, Germany  signed a Proclamation of  St. Paul to bring together a closer German-American genealogical relationship. This partnership would form a German-American genealogy structure between countries and organizations for sharing contacts and genealogical research. This partnership is open to all organizations (and individuals) interested in German genealogical research.
 
Common Goals
 
The common elements of this agreement are to create a partnership between organizations and individuals interested in German Genealogy research; to share strategies for research; to help develop contacts between organizations and individuals; to create a list of most valuable references, resources and websites and to create contact list of organizations, speakers, researchers, guides, historians and translators in support of the Proclamation of St. Paul which is the partnership between GGS, PRG and DAGV.
 
Future Vision
 
The larger vision and goals of this agreement are to share knowledge and research strategies and to develop webpages that describe the partnership and share information.  These Web pages would describe German and American genealogy and would be written in German and English. They would be written from both the American and German perspective.
 
This Agreement of genealogy societies is designed to build a partnership relationship between them.
