Gerald Perschbacher can trace his German heritage back to 500 A.D. No wonder he’s so interested in genealogy. He was a founding leader of the German Special Interest Group of the St. Louis Genealogy Society and continues to be an major resource for those wanting to know more about how to find out more about their German ancestry. He was a key source to me in the writing of Beer, Brats, and Baseball: St. Louis Germans.
He was one of four seekers of their German ancestry in a piece on genealogy that begins on page 203. You can buy the book at a bookstore or at Amazon.com. But the best place is at my release-signing party from 2-5 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 16 at Al Smith’s Feasting Fox Restaurant, 4200 S. Grand Blvd., St. Louis
