Has a family history been published of your family? If so, please identify how to secure a copy of the family history or who may have additional information. (Please provide names and addresses.): Lang family book, descendants of Karl & Elizabeth (Humann) Lang. Also, a Gums family book, family of Jacob Gums and descendants. Both books are shelved at the Germans from Russia Heritage Society office in Bismarck, ND. Many family members have copies of these books too. There should also be a Schultes family book either completed or still in the making. The Schultes family comes from the Streeter, ND area. These are my mother’s relatives.
