Guests From the US

Gaeste aus den USA

The day following the Bundestreffen, Adolf Fetsch, national president of the Landsmannschaft, talked with Michael M. Miller, Bob Benson and Alton Sissell, all from the United States, about improving cooperation between the Landsmannschaft and overseas organizations of Germans from Russia.

In the course of these talks, held in the national offices of the Landsmannschaft, the first piece of agreement was that preparations should be made for the founding of an "International Organization for the Germans from Russia," one in which Germans from Russia living all over the world could get together for the purpose of researching the culture and history of this ethnic group.

Initial priority would be given to family and ancestral origin research -- an area in which our countrymen in the United States have already performed considerable and exemplary work. Any reader interested in this subject should contact the national business office.

Our appreciation is extended to Alex Herzog for translation of this article.
