I'm not sure if you know who I am but you must of known AJ and Velma. They raised my father Delvin. I came across your web page during a web search about the Blacksea Germans, your blogs about the harmonies down the Danube are what I know as well about the Leibbrandts my (mother's maiden name) shoot me an email sometime. Merry Christmas.

Wow! These people moved alot. Was it wonderlust or were they pushed out? St. Francis is also a case of not enough jobs to keep us all there. You do what you have to do. Sue

We in St. Francis are all excited about the reunion this September. Hoping for a good turn out. Always great to see family.
After moving back 3 years ago I hadn't realized what I had missed living away from home. It's good to be back.
No matter where we lived St. Francis was always home to us and the kids.
Thanks Penny for providing the site.


Better late than never--I think. This is the first time I have read the complete saga of the original family trip from Germany to Russia. What a tremendous job of research, Penny. The information is priceless and I can now refer my grandkids to your site for stories about our family's migration to the United States.
