These meetings are usually held on the 3rd Saturday of each month in the Mississippi Room at the Minnesota Genealogy Center, 1385 Mendota Heights Rd, Mendota Heights, MN 55120.  At these meetings we help each other transcribe and translate the old German Script.  We ask that documents be scanned and the images saved to a flash drive, which will be shown on a flat screen monitor on the wall.  The public is welcome to attend.
