Announcing the 2021 FEEFHS conference!

The decision has been made: the 2021 FEEFHS conference will be presented online.

The conference with 64 different classes will be on August 1113, 2021 (Wednesday-Friday). Planned are four different classes simultaneously.

And here is the good news. In the past you had to choose which of the classes to attend and which to miss. In 2021 you don't have to miss one single class since all sessions will be recorded and posted on our website for a time to all conference attendees (login will be required).


We are still working on the final schedule and the speaker setup. The following tracks will be available (in alphabetical order):

  • Austro-Hungarian track
  • DNA track
  • German track
  • Germans from Russia track
  • Jewish track
  • Polish track
  • Resources track
  • Russian track

Learn from the experts in Slavic, Germanic, and other aspects of East European Genealogy. 

The program will feature tracks in research in the former Austro-Hungarian Empire (including Czech, Slovak, etc.), German Empire, Poland, and the Russian Empire (including Ukraine, Belarus, and Baltic Countries) as well as classes on DNA Research, Jewish, Germans from Russia, and more. 

The conference will consist of three days of live instruction, which will also be recorded and available for on-demand viewing  for a limited time after the conference. There will be opportunities for connecting with speakers and other attendees through virtual consultations and a virtual lobby/lounge. 

More details and a preliminary conference program are now available. Early Bird Conference Registration is now open.

Conference presenters are announced.  Here is the list of conference sessions.

We wish all of you good health and well being during this time, and hope to have you join us in 2021 for help in discovering your Central and East European ancestors!
