Book "Greetings to the homeland of my ancestors"

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 was translated in German as well. The layour of the file is prepared 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.
