German Genealogy Group to meet Thursday

The German Genealogy Group will meet this Thursday, Nov. 5, at the V.F.W. Post in Hicksville.

This month’s program will be “Stories from Ellis Island, Part I” and the presenter will be
Fred Voss, a  tour guide and researcher at Ellis Island National Park.
Did you have relatives who came through Ellis Island? Did the inspectors detain them? Were they treated at the island’s hospitals? Did your family names get changed by the inspectors? Mr. Voss will give an illustrated talk about the past, present and future of this iconic American landmark as well as share some of his favorite immigration stories.
There is an orientation session at 7 p.m. and the meeting will begin at 7:30 p.m. For more information, go to the club website at:
