Cover: The cover is a general view of Budingen, Germany, in the seventeenth century, where many emigrants were married before leaving for the colonies in Russia.
  • "A Document of 1766 Found in Budingen, Germany," by Emma S. Haynes gives the names of some of the original emigrants from Germany to the Volga.

  • Additional contributions by Mrs. Haynes are the articles "Recent News on Germans From Russia" and "Arrival Dates in New York of Steamships Given in Work Papers 9 Through 14."

  • "The Long Trail of the Poor" is the fifth in the series by Lew Malinowski on German emigrants and was translated by Hildegard K. Schwabauer.

  • Two German villages in Russia receive special attention: "Orlovskoye on the Volga" by Jacob and Irma Eichhorn and "Lichtental, Bessarabia: The Story of a Swabian Community in Russia," translated by Herman Wildermuth.

  • Adam Giesinger has two articles: "Villages in Which Our Forefathers Lived: Germans From Hungary in the Odessa Colonies" and "The German Republic on the Volga in the 1920s."

  • "An Interview With Lydia Kretz: Observations of a Soviet-German Member of the Supreme Soviet of the U. S. S. R." is an unusual interview translated by Philippe Edel.

  • The importance of music in the lives of our people is discussed by Lawrence Weigel as he speaks of the many fine instrumentalists and bands and gives us a traditional post wedding song, Ihr Musikanten tut mir spielen (Musicians, play a song for me).

  • New acquisitions for the Archives reviewed in this issue include: Memories of the Black Sea Germans by Joseph S. Height; Emmons County History, Ellen Woods and Euvagh Wenzel, editors; Fifty Golden Years: Tramping Lake 1895-1955.
