Gary Rebholz, the editor and researcher behind Milwaukee's German newspapers : an index of death notices and related items will be giving a presentation about his work at the Salzmann Library on the St. Francis de Sales Seminary Campus.
His work indexing death notices pulled from the early German newspapers of the City of Milwaukee has allowed him to create this invaluable genealogy resource. Currently a four volume resource, Gary continues to work on it. The four volumes include two volumes arranged alphabetically by last name, and two volumes arranged chronologically by year.
Gary's talk will focus on what the average researcher can find and how they can use local German newspapers without a prior knowledge of the German language. He will also discuss the different resources available at the Milwaukee Public Library and the Salzmann Library.
His talk will be Saturday, July 18th; starting at 1:00 p.m. Reservations are suggested. Call the Salzmann Library at (414) 747-6479, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
