Using Land Records and other Documents for Genealogy  (PVF Meetings)
1:00 pm
Lindenwood Community Center and Zoom

Chris DeWuske, the founder and editor of the “My Pomerania” website (mypomerania.com), will present using land records as secondary sources for genealogy and vital information. He will cover different strategies for approaching the various documents, which can be used to add full branches to family trees and sometimes understand more about a family's living circumstances. He will discuss Grundbücher, mortgages, Grundakten, Urkunden Sammlungen, and others.


The “My Pomerania” website began as a small side project in October 2015 and grew tremendously in 2019 after Chris brought back over 300 records from the Polish archives and placed them online for free.
