About this webinar

Until the early 1900s, the majority of the population in the Germanic states was engaged in agriculture. Thus, most of us with Germanic heritage will have at least some ancestors engaged in farming. German farm customs were different from those in America and German farmers were tied to their land in ways that American farmers were not. Particularly in the earlier years, the history of your family's farm was integral to the history of your family.
