  7. Welcome to the homepage of the Society for Family Research in Franconia! Here you will be informed about activities, events and publications of the association. We would like to help you find your ancestors by providing a detailed overview of family history in Franconia as well as information about our library and archive. http://www.gf-franken.de/ from wikipedia.. Franconia (German: Franken, also called Frankenland) is a region in Germany, characterized by its culture and language, and may be roughly associated with the areas in which the East Franconian dialect group, locally referred to as fränkisch, is spoken.[1] It commonly refers to the eastern part of the historical Franconian stem duchy, mainly represented by the modern Bavarian administrative districts of Lower, Middle, and Upper Franconia, the adjacent northeastern parts of Heilbronn-Franken in Baden-Württemberg, parts of Thuringia south of the Rennsteig ridge, and small parts of Hesse. However, there is no fixed area that is officially defined as Franconia.
  8. The Society functions as a non-profit, non-denominational, non-political organization, incorporated under the laws of the State of North Dakota. Its aims are educational and social. Its purpose is to bring together people who are interested in discovering the common history unique to Germanic-Russian ethnics and to preserve the many elements of their rich heritage. The Society collects, lists, and catalogs published materials and personal documents that tell of the European migrations and exodus to the United States and Canada and also of the pioneer life on the plains. These materials can be read and researched in our library at 1125 W. Turnpike Ave., Bismarck, ND 58501. This library at our International Headquarters in Bismarck contains many books and magazines dealing with our ancestors. http://www.grhs.org/
  9. The Genealogical Circle (GK) was founded in 1963 as a leisure group of the leisure community Siemens Erlangen and is currently about 110 members. Most of them research the history of their own ancestors in all of Germany (in their earlier borders) and partly beyond these boundaries. The GK is helpful in a variety of ways: http://www.genealogienetz.de/vereine/gksiemens/?Home

The main focus of the collection is in the Lower German region, but there are also numerous sources from the entire German as well as the formerly German language area. http://www.genealogy.net/vereine/GGHH/index.html
  11. With this page we turn to the German-speaking genealogist, who suddenly realizes that his family has connections to Sweden. Whether it is that forefathers or mothers come from Sweden, or if older relatives have migrated to Sweden. We do not therefore turn to beginners in family research, but to newcomers in Swedish ancestry research. We assume that the reader is already versed in genealogy. http://g-gruppen.net/sch/
  12. They seem to have a large amount of information, books, and guidance on genealogy, as well as data concerning Southern Lower Saxony. http://www.genealogy.net/vereine/GHGG/

  14. Though this site blocks any form of pasting, ( I wanted to translate and cannot ). I believe they are focused upon both Hesse and the Rhineland Pfalz areas. Seems they are situated around the Wiesbaden archives and therefore Hesse. Also appears to indicate a monthly meeting on the first Wednesday each winter month at 1700 hrs. They also seem very open to non-members attending their sessions. I might have to try this. http://www.genealogy.net/vereine/fgnff/
