Lucky me, I have German ancestors on both my maternal and paternal lines! I am currently researching the names SICK and SELL in Schleswig-Holstein, SCHNEIDER in Hessen and KUNDERS (Conard) in North Rhineland - Westphalia. I enjoy doing German research and trying to remember some of the high school German language that I took oh so long ago.

I Did It!

After thinking about it for ages, I finally went to my first local genealogy society meeting - and joined!  I'm now a proud member of the Whatcom County Genealogy Society ( ).  We are located in the northwest corner of Washington State.

It seems like a nice group of folks and they were very welcoming. I am looking forward to monthly meetings and the chance to help others with research.

If nothing else, it will keep me off the streets one night a month :)
