German Society on Wikipedia

The German Society of Montreal is currently working on a project to improve and expand the Wikipedia article on the Society. We invite you to take a look at the work in progress on Wikipedia. Writing the article is a lot of work. If you would like to help or could assist us with translating the final version into the German and French versions of Wikipedia, please let us now. Every little bit can help us preserve our history.
