International German Genealogy Partnership (IGGP) Conference
Friday, June 9 through Sunday, June 11
International German Genealogy Partnership (IGGP) Conference  (PalAm National)
Grand Wayne Conference Center, Fort Wayne, Indiana
The International German Genealogy Partnership (IGGP) conference is happening in a just few months. Early bird discounted registration ends March 3. This is one of the few occasions in which you will hear from and connect with people focused on German genealogy, and only German genealogy. Attendees will enjoy a weekend of programs and activities that highlight the diversity of the German-speaking genealogy community.
This amazing conference will offer more than 100 presentations and more than 25 Connection sessions — the most presentations IGGP has ever offered and the largest number of German genealogy presentations at a genealogical conference in the U.S.
The conference will be held in-person in Fort Wayne, Indiana, June 9-11. But there is also a robust virtual option, with access to programming in real-time. And a USB drive is available for purchase, allowing all attendees to watch the recorded presentations. Go to to learn more and to register.
Look for presentations from speakers in Switzerland, Austria, Ireland, Australia, Brazil, Serbia, and Germany. They do not usually present in the U.S. But you can hear from them at the IGGP conference! And, of course, U.S. experts in the field of German genealogy will speak as well. Check out the list of both on-site and virtual speakers at #IGGC2023, now posted on the website. You'll see for yourself the amazing range of topics they'll cover.
Fort Wayne has long been known as “a most German town,” with about 50% of its residents claiming German ancestry, and the Fort Wayne Germanfest is happening during the conference. Those attending the conference will also have the opportunity to utilize the acclaimed Genealogy Center at Allen County Public Library (ACPL) with historical and genealogical materials that number more than 1.2 million items in the physical collection. The library further offers access to dozens of major databases and thousands of smaller specialty data files. Researchers will have access to the expert staff who can assist them with finding their families’ histories and stories. You can learn more about this collection at our April Third Tuesday program.
