A new museum opened up three months ago in Washington, D.C. It's the German-American Heritage Museum.
About 15 percent of Americans come from a German background. If you're one of them, you may be want to visit the museum on your next trip to D.C.
If you're of German-American heritage, you might be interested in tracing your Germanic roots. Here are two titles that will help: A Genealogist's Guide to Discovering Your Germanic Ancestors: How to Find and Record Your Unique Heritage by S. Chris Anderson [929 AND], or In Search of Your German Roots: A Complete Guide to Tracing Your Ancestors in the Germanic Areas of Europe by Angus Baxter [929 BAX].
Of course, if you're like me, you're an American mutt with a background that encompasses many nationalities. In that case, I'd recommend just browsing in the genealogy section, 929, to see what applies to you!
