Description
This issue is devoted almost exclusively to the AHSGR "Meet the People" tours to South America in January and February of 1978.
 
Content:
  • A wide variety of articles written by people in the two tour groups covers events, adventures, and impressions of this memorable trip.

  • Included are accounts of visits to Mennonite colonies in Brazil and Paraguay, the celebrations in Argentina of the 100-year anniversary of the arrival of Russian Germans in that country, the finding of relatives and new friends, and subsequent explorations in other South American countries.

  • Of separate interest is Emma S. Haynes's translation of "The Coming of the First Volga German Catholics to America," rewritten from a diary started on February 8, 1887, by Athanasius Karlin. This article is accompanied by a passenger list.

  • Completing the issue is a genealogy section with the "Surname Exchange."
