The Detre Library and Archives at the Senator John Heinz History Center will present its first-ever German genealogy workshop at 9 a.m. June 30.

Michael Lacopo, a nationally renowned genealogist and expert in German genealogical research, will lead the daylong program.

The hands-on workshop will include presentations on using electronic resources to advance genealogical research; finding and using German church records; identifying the German origins of American immigrants; and more.

Representatives from such local genealogical and heritage organizations as the University of Pittsburgh Archives and Special Collections, Rodef Shalom Archives and the Western Pennsylvania Genealogical Society will be on hand.

Those attending will also have the opportunity to attend a curator-led tour of artifacts from the museum's German American Collection on display in the fourth-floor special collections gallery.

Registration and information is available online at www.heinzhistorycenter.org/events.
