MAGS Spring Workshop
Friday, April 21, 2023
Maritime Institute of Technology
Linthicum Heights, Maryland
Using 19th Century Civil Records in French Departmental Archives 
Presented by Bob Greiner
Many German-speaking immigrants originally came from the Alsace-Lorraine region of France, which at various times in history was incorporated into Germany. Bob will discuss the history behind the civil records and review other topics required to locate and interpret the records. He will demonstrate how to access these records on the French departmental archives websites. Using several examples, attendees will have the opportunity to access these free sites and search for records themselves.
The conference room will have good Internet connectivity. Please bring your own device so you can learn how to access these records yourself. You will require at least a tablet or laptop, but you will have a much better experience with a laptop.
Please ensure you are logged into the website as a member to ensure you receive the correct member price. If you would like to join MAGS to get the member price, please complete the new member registration process before registering for this event.
