The Immigrant Genealogical Society was founded by Gerda Haffner and Elisabeth Sharp in North Hollywood, California around 1976. It began as an informal workshop for the study of German genealogy. The natural outgrowth of their efforts was creation of the Immigrant Library. In 1982, the Immigrant Genealogical Society was formally organized, with its primary goal to protect, utilize, and add to the sizable collection of genealogical reference books in the Immigrant Library's collection. In 1990, the Immigrant Genealogical Society moved their headquarters from North Hollywood to Burbank, California. Since the Society has access to many resources which are not readily available elsewhere, the Society helps American researchers find their German ancestors through the services of the German Genealogical Research Group (GGRG). Emphasis is placed on the German-speaking areas of Europe. Through the efforts of the German Genealogical Exchange Group (GGEG), the Society members in America helps researchers in Germany find their long lost relatives who immigrated to America. For more information, see their Web site.

Indexed in PERiodical Source Index (PERSI) under AMGG.

This periodical includes indexes (in segments) to queries published in Familienkundliche Nachrichten (FANA), which is a small German magazine based in Neustadt/Aisch, West Germany. It is much like the query section of an American genealogical publication. Queries are submitted from researchers in Germany and elsewhere in the world. FANA is enclosed in virtually all regular publications of German genealogical societies, which means it reaches practically all genealogists interested in German research. Most entries are in German, although some are in English. Submissions in English will be translated into German by FANA editors.

This periodical features Ahnentafels, articles about archives, repositories, and other German record resources, book reviews, ethnic and religious groups, extracts of births and baptisms, family histories, extracts of immigration lists, local histories, military histories, passenger records, religious histories, and other resources to aid in those doing genealogical research for their German ancestors and descendants who immigrated elsewhere.

About this record

This screen shows the complete catalog entry of the title you selected.

The Film/Digital Notes contain a description of the microfilm or microfiche numbers. Some family history centers and libraries maintain collections of previously loaned microfilms or microfiche. A camera icon indicates items that are digitally available online.

Generally, catalog entries are written in the same language as the original record they describe.

Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on FamilySearch.org include:

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
  • The microfilm may have been scanned, but have a contractual, data privacy, or other restriction preventing access. FamilySearch makes every effort to enable access dependent on decisions of record custodians and applicable laws.
