Oktoberfest is the annual meeting of the Orangeburgh German-Swiss Genealogical Society. Usually held on a Friday and Saturday in mid-October it is a forum where researchers come together to have fun and share sources of genealogical materials and good food. It is a perfect opportunity to meet fellow family history researchers in person. Everyone with an interest in family history research in the area of the original Orangeburgh District is welcome to attend. Society membership is not required.
