I’m headed to the Ostfriesen Society Genealogical Conference, being held this year in Cedar Falls, Iowa. (In previous years it was in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area.) The complete research library of OSGA will be available for research. Let’s see: Tergast, Leer, and Neermoor are some of the books I’ll be checking. (Thank goodness the Germans kept such an excellent records!)
Part of the conference is an Ostfriesen Tea, always a delight in itself! This time I’m taking my own teacup, pictured above, for the occasion. The cup was a gift from my German friends (Ostfriesen, of course!) Jens and Jane.
