“Germania San Jose – The Early German Heritage of Silicon Valley”
April Halberstadt and Maria Brand are celebrating the publication of Maria Brand’s book “Germania San Jose – The Early German Heritage of Silicon Valley” at the Annual Membership Meeting on December 6, 2019. Thank you to the Historical Society that for nearly a year managed the effort to prepare a manuscript of historical notes by Maria Brand. They edited the manuscript with the support of several Germania members, and published and marketed the book in 2019.
