ASHHS Quarterly Meeting

May 20, 2018

The American/Schleswig-Holstein Heritage Society (ASHHS) quarterly meeting will be held at 1:30 p.m., on Sunday May 20, 2018, at the Walcott American Legion, 121 W. Bryant St., Walcott, Iowa

The program for our upcoming meeting will be “Chain Migration” from Schleswig Holstein. We are hoping that the program will be somewhat interactive, with those attending bringing information and memories about their own families from Schleswig Holstein. Anne Schnack Boussellot and I will be doing the program together. Using our family trees as an example, and utilizing a large map of Schleswig Holstein, we hope to trace our families, the families of our members, and all of the families who have been connected through family relationships, marriage, and friendship. who followed each other to eastern Iowa. Who knows, we may find that more of us are related that we previously knew! Anne’s father is from Borgwedel(near Fleckaby), Schleswig Holstein. She and I are third cousins, through her mother’s side, descended from Hans Holst, who also was from Borgwedel. The meeting should be a lot of fun!

Light refreshments will be provided. The program is free and open to the public. The American Legion Hall is handicap accessible. For more information, call Mary Ann Muller 563-284-6640, or e-mail
