Presentation “On the tracks of the emigrants” for the Historical Society (Geschichtsverein Härten e.V.)
Under the above title I have held a presentation on Oct 14, 2005 for the Historical Society in the inn “Mayer’s Waldhorn” in Maehringen. In the meantime I have translated the presentation into English.
As a special giveaway I have asked my friends and cousins, being descendants of the emigrants whether they would be prepared to send me some greeting words or a story about their ancestors. From all the great contributions I produced a multilingual booklet consisting of two parts. The first part contains the greeting letters I have received in original language and the second part contains stories about the life and experiences of the emigrants. The original
text were translated in German as well. The file is layouted for double-sided printout to be bound like a book. Due to licenses reasons the usage of the document is limited for private use only! Since the first version additional descendants of the Haerten emigrants did deliver their parts and have been incorporated in the current version.
