Dale Payne Sayers will present a program on the genealogical resources of the Germanna Foundation at GRIVA’s November 29th member meeting. (Please note date change due to Thanksgiving holiday!)
The membership of the Germanna Foundation is made up of descendants from the German colonists arriving in Virginia in 1714 and 1717. This organization is actively involved in historic preservation, archaeology, genealogy, and making connections with current German citizens in the areas of emigration. With both a library and many published family histories, the Germanna Foundation offers a wealth of resources for the serious researcher of early German roots in Virginia. Come to learn more!
