ProGen Study Group Certificate came yesterday


Hi followers

In May 2017 I began an 18 month long Professional Genealogy study group. The ProGen Program is a great way to prepare for becoming a Certified Genealogist (CG) by a national organization.

In November 2018 the study program ended for my group.

Yesterday in the mail I received my certification of completion and participation in the study group.

Now next goal is going through the certification process.

Thanks to all the leaders and fellow students I worked with the last year and half.

Best Bob

German Confirmation Booklets from 1902 given to Paternal Grandmother and Twin Brother


I recently found my Grandma Erenstina Wendtland and her faternal twin brother Wiehelm/Wilhelm Wendtland confirmation gift booklets given on April 27, 1902 by the Lutheran pastor in Lyndon Station, WI. The readings are all in German and printed out of St. Louis, Missouri by Concordia Publishing house. The church was part of the Missouri synod at the time. Both children’s parents immigrated from Germany/Prussia circa 1880.
