The complexity of Germany’s history, and its effect on genealogical sources can be difficult obstacles for a family historian to overcome. The presentation will focus specifically on German civil records and parish records, with emphasis on how/where to locate the records and how to interpret the records. Presented by Alexander Tolksdorf.
Alexander is a genealogist and speaker, accredited in the Germany – East region. He has experience researching across Germany, and in Dutch and Eastern European record sets and family lines. His personal family history journey was inspired by a trip to Ellis Island and flourished through correspondence with his great uncle in Germany, who also was an active family historian.
He graduated from the University of Detroit Mercy and holds an MBA. Alex is a financial analyst at the Ford Motor Company, and is the current President of the Ford Genealogy Club. He regularly speaks to genealogical societies across Michigan and across the US through virtual platforms
