A two-day genealogy conference, held annually at Schloss  Dhaun near Kirn 
in the Rhineland-Palatinate, will take place on the  17th and 18th of April 
2010. The themes for this year’s  event cover research in the United  States 
and in Germany.  
MAGS past president, John  T. Humphrey, will participate in this  event 
with his presentation  Die Erforschung unserer deutschen Vorfahren:  eine 
US-amerikanische Perspektive  ( Researching our German Ancestors, An American 
Perspective). Other  lectures related to the American theme include a lecture 
by Helmut Schmahl that  will explore the myths and realities of emigration to 
the United States.  Conference organizer, Roland Geiger, will present in 
German a lecture prepared  by the American historian Philipp Otterness, 
covering the first mass migration  to America in 1709.  
Lectures covering German sources include a presentation  by Hans Joachim 
Kuhn on Sources for Family Historians from the late Middle Ages  for Westrich 
and Hunsruck. Günter Paulus will give a lecture about the Kirner  
genealogist Oskar Pennigroth. A presentation addressing generational morals and  
conflict in the Middle Ages will be given by Sylvie Tritz.  Attendees will also 
have an opportunity  to explore German paleography.  
All presentations will be delivered in  German.   
Schloss Dhaun is a castle near Hochstetten overlooking  the Nahe  River 
valley. Parts of the  fortification date from the thirteenth-century.
