Welcome to the new MAGS web site!
The MAGS officers are excited to be able to present a new on-line look for our organization. You will find many new features on this site. The site also provides us a better ability to manage our membership and communicate with our members. We plan to use a session at our next conference and articles in our newsletter to describe the site to you.
Come to the Fall meeting in Hagerstown where we will devote one session to showing you these new features. Also check Der Kurier newsletters for information about the new website.

New database records added
The final set of records for the Geissenhainer baptisms were added to the MAGS database. The database now includes all baptisms from 1827 through 1879.
Gift from the Archives
MAGS will periodically display images of interest, including postcards, letterhead, and other historical documents discovered at the National Archives and other locations. Check back frequently to see what's new. In addition, members will have access to a photo gallery and library of images to browse.
This stylized view depicts the tunnel that was constructed under the River Elbe in Hamburg. Pedestrians and horsecart traffic were transported via ramps and an elevator to the lower level where they could travel under the river to the elevator on the other side. This eliminated the need to build a bridge over the river. The tunnel opened on 7 September 1911.
