This happened two days ago but I learned of it today. Anyone with German ancestry will probably be interested in this web genealogy resource year-round.
October 6 is German-American Day, commemorating the first German settlers in what later became the USA on October 6, 1683. 300 years later, in 1983, President Ronald Reagan declared this date to become the German-American Day in the U.S. The Deutsche Arbeitsgemeinschaft genealogischer Verbände e. V. (DAGV) has created a new section on the organization’s web site called German-American Genealogy.
Quoting from the web page:
Following the historical path and also in further development of the Declaration of Salt Lake City by the DAGV and the Federation of Genealogical Societies (FGS) in the US on March 22, 2013 we as German umbrella organisation present this site for intensify the contact not only between the our two but between all genealogical societies and researchers on genealogy in both of our countries dealing with people that are interested in that special topic.
We are supporting contacts to make researching more easy on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean: for the one who wants to find his ancestors coming from Germany mostly by leaving the ports of Hamburg or Bremerhaven, for the other one who wants to find offspring of former immigrants to America in today. Both could lead to a vivid connection in present families.
