AGGSH is a German-Danish genealogy society.

 The AGGSH eV is a non-profit society, in which historians and genealogists have these aims:

  • jointly undertake intensive research of emigration from Schleswig-Holstein and to publish the results;

  • transcribing the Schleswig-Holstein Census registers from 1769 to 1860 and to make them freely available as data banks;

  • furthering German-Danish and German-American cooperation in the fields of historical and genealogical research;

  • cultivating a close cooperation with the provincial, federal, church and regional archives to the extent that their records may be within the framework of AGGSH projects.”
