The purpose of German Interest Group-Wisconsin is to assist our members with their German genealogy research. 

We do not do research for others but assist members by having monthly educational meetings. 

Meetings are held on the first Monday of the month except for January, July and September. We meet at 7:00 pm at

St. Mark Lutheran Church located at 2921 Mt. Zion Avenue, Janesville, Wisconsin.

For the 2020 calendar year, single memberships are $10 a year and $12.50 for family memberships. Foreign memberships are $16. Beginning in 2020 these prices apply only to those who want to receive their newsletter digitally (by email). For those who want to receive mailed paper copies in 2020, the single membership will be $15 , and family membership will cost $17.50. Foreign memberships will be $21. This change has been made necessary because of the rising cost of postage and printing rates. Membership in GIG runs on the calendar year. Membership starts on January 1st and runs until December 31st. 

Remember to update any email or postal address changes that you may have. Membership includes a copy of the organization’s newsletter and placement of the names you are researching on the group’s surname database.
