**For Immediate Release**


This year April 15 is not just the deadline to file U.S. taxes: It’s also the last chance to get a discounted registration price for the 2019 International German Genealogy Conference, “STRIKE IT RICH! with CONNECTIONS 2 DISCOVERIES.”

Hundreds of people with German ancestry will be coming to the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Sacramento, CA, from June 15-17. Hosted by the Sacramento German Genealogy Society, conference information and registration can be accessed through the International German Genealogy Partnership website.

Planning for the conference is nearly complete. It will include speakers from around the world and has drawn sponsorship from the major organizations in the larger genealogy world, including titans Ancestry and FamilySearch as well as MyHeritage and FamilyTreeDNA.

Reservations after April 15 will be accepted only on a space-available basis.

Likewise, special events such as a Friday night trip to a Biergarten, daily luncheons with marquee presenters, and a Sunday night banquet are also only being offered until they are sold out.

Join others from around the world who will be rushing to California in June 2019 for German genealogy gold. REGISTER NOW!
