Program Description

Event Details

The rules of pronunciation we all learned in first grade to be able to read just do not apply to German. The goal of this workshop is to provide attendees with the basics of reading German words, so that they can correctly say their ancestors’ names and places of origin. This will be a session that is not linguistically technical but will help American genealogists to sound more German!



Special services like sign language interpretation and assistive listening can be provided at events to patrons upon request. Please give at least up to five business days notice to library staff in order to schedule services at events. Call 239-479-4636 or stop by the reference desk at your local library.

Individuals who do not want to be photographed or recorded are responsible for removing themselves from the area or notifying the photographer of their opt-out status.
