Culture Corner: Call for Items
If you brought personal family items to display for the twentieth and twenty-fifth anniversaey gatherings, we invite you bring them again for this gathering.
Think about what your family heritage can add to the corner. Do you have pictures of your family or weddings? How about your family heirloom klöpplesack? Or old lace on a treasured pillow or a curtain from that klöppelsack? Bring your family history books. Do you have household items like an old slicer for making kraut, any woodworking tools, novel dishware? How about some old documents that show the written language from the early periods of the homeland?
Jerry Gulden will be at the GBHS Research Center on Fridays September 19th and October 10 from 11-12 AM and 1-2 PM. Come by and bring your ideas and anything you want to display. You can call Jerry at 507-387-3943 or email him at GBHS84@hotmail.com.
A new section of the Culture Corner will be called the Bohemian Village Heimatland. Tables will be available to set your set out your items for all to see. Bring your items to us from 3 PM onward. You can show your pictures or setup a poster board display of your family. This is an opportunity for you to help others experience the homeland.
For those who have made the trip to the homeland, share your photos with those who have not been able to make the trip. Bring your home village pictures. Were you lucky enough to get a picture of your family's home in a village or at least the lot where the house was located? Do you have pictures of he church and its cemetery or any tombstones with family names?
