German Marylanders – Shelley Arnold
FEBRUARY 23, SUNDAY, 3 pm
Every story is important. Whether your ancestors were inventors, manufacturers, brewers or a stay at home mom, they all contributed to American culture. Their every step paved the way.
“The starting point for all these historiographical endeavors was: we have to show to our fellow Americans that the Germans have been here much longer than generally known and that they have contributed to the substance and expanse, to the social, political, and moral texture of this country. You don’t have to be ashamed of being German.” Dieter Cunz, 1959.
In this workshop, Ms. Arnold will talk about German history and heritage here in Maryland. Her website www.germanmarylanders.org is dedicated to those of German ancestry. Some are recent arrivals, but for the most part, the pages contain information about German ancestors that arrived in America many years ago and settled here in Maryland.
