Germans to America (Heinz History Center Affiliate Workshop)
October 27 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm EDT
The Lawrence County Historical Society is proud to announce the “Germans to America” educational program presented by Robert O. Stakeley, Heinz History Center Affiliate Coordinator, and Stefan and Pamela Israel, Heinz Affiliate Member “Unlock Your History.”
Ethnic Germans came to the New World in droves in the 18th and 19th century, and even today German remains the largest ethnic group in the United Stated according to the U.S. census. Germanic influences on American culture and language continues to be felt across the country.
The Heinz History Center has an on-going partnership with “Unlock Your History” to bring engaging workshops focused on Germanic languages, immigration, and customs, with a particular eye to influences that might have affected your immigrant ancestors.
