PRINCETON – The immigration experiences of two German families will be discussed during the Bureau County Genealogical Society’s next meeting at 7 p.m. Thursday at the society library, 629 S. Main St.

The free program will be a video titled “Little Germanys.” These were cities or towns settled across America that provided for the needs of immigrant Germans. The video features the Steinweg family of Steinway & Sons and the Gumpertz family, who settled in the slums of New York’s Little Germany. 

The public is welcome.

For more information, call 815-879-3133 or stop by the library from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and the first Saturday of each month.
