Every year the Germanna Foundation leads a special trip to Germany, focusing on towns, churches and other places where the people lived who later became the original early 1700’s Germanna colonists in and near Fort Germanna in Virginia.
Barb Price, the tour leader, a genealogist and a trustee of the Foundation, provides an overview of the annual trip in this online webinar held on November 14, 2020.
