She is also a moderator of the German Genealogy Discussion Group established at MGC. Her newest class is Researching Your German Ancestor (German Research A – Z). Iveta fully embraced this new direction in her career. There is always something new to learn, either by tracing her own family tree, or by exploring the resources MGC has to offer.

Her focus since high school years has always been history, social studies, law, history of law, old manuscript, languages, and lately etymology.
