The Ostfriesen Genealogical Society of America (OGSA) is a non-profit, all-volunteer member-supported organization committed to helping our members find family connections and better understand the lives of their Ostfriesen ancestors.
The Ostfriesland area of Germany is located in the northwest corner of Germany, bordered by the Netherlands and the North Sea. This area may also be called East Friesland and is now part of the Niedersachsen, or Lower Saxony, state of Germany.

Support the OGSA
The OGSA is all-volunteer 501c3 non-profit association, and we appreciate your support. Contributions help to support our ongoing programs including our research library, conferences, translations of new resources, our website and other projects while contributions to our Ostfriesen Heritage Fund help to provide long-term support for OGSA’s mission.
The OGSA’s role preserving church records has qualified it for a 20% matching grant for contributions through the Lutheran Legacy Foundation. OGSA’s Heritage Fund was established as an endowment fund to help expand the OGSA’s programs and provide support for future generations of researchers. Donations qualifying for the 20% match must be made through the Lutheran Legacy Foundation’s website.

OGSA has set up two types of endowment funds using different investment portfolios.
Purpose of Funds: In an effort to maintain all records of births, baptisms, confirmations, marriages, deaths and other life events, the Ostfreisen Genealogical Society of America is proposing that we not only digitize American church records, but expand and maintain an extensive library of records or records, books, maps, census reports, cemetery records, passenger lists, naturalization records, city directories, and obituaries, about the immigrations of the Ostfriesen Germans.
