Theme: The Road Less Traveled
A research road that is more difficult to find for people of German origin,
whose ancestors migrated through Poland and Western Ukraine (Volhynia).
Research opportunities, speakers and workshops will assist you in
discovering your ancestral roots out of these areas.
SGGEE reaches researchers, not only in Canada, but the U.S.A., Germany,
Poland, Australia and Russia.
