I offer 1 hour presentations for genealogy groups on the following topics:

  • “Journey into German Genealogy” – Useful tips and tricks for finding and using the multitude of records available online and in print to locate your ancestors. 


  • “Deciphering Old German Handwriting” – Introductory course for deciphering records in the elusive German script. 

If you are interested in scheduling a presentation for your genealogy group, contact me here. 



Katherine presented an engaging program about researching German ancestry at the public library in Andover, MA.  She drew a large crowd and held their attention with her deep knowledge of German history and  culture.  Her genuine enthusiasm for researching German ancestry and deciphering old handwritten German documents is what made her presentation so enjoyable. I’ve had several patrons request that I invite her back.  — Stephanie Aude, Genealogy and Local History Librarian, Memorial Hall Library, Andover, MA 

“With a lack of robust German census records available to most researchers, it’s nice to take a look at alternative records. Genealogy researcher and translator Katherine Schober has uploaded a fantastic video appropriate for beginning and intermediate genealogists online for free. She’s a great presenter, and I hope she updates her YouTube page with more videos in the future!” – Fountaindale Public LIbrary, on video upload of “German into German Genealogy” Presentation
