Soon Volhynia will be again in the news with the presentation "Your Ancestors in Volhynia and Poland: How They Got There and How They Lived." Volhynia is now an integral part of the Ukraine.
  The stories of the German migrations are tales of wars, famine, hardship and survival. Their story will be told at 7 PM Monday July 13th by Emeritus Professor William Remus of University of Hawaii. This free presentation will be sponsored by and at the St Joseph Public Library.
  William Remus might be a familiar name to some area residents. He graduated in 1962 for St Joseph Public High School and in 1964 from Lake Michigan College. Remus went on to earn his Ph.D. from Michigan State. He taught for 34 years at University of Hawaii and still resides in Hawaii.
  The additional sponsors include American Historical Society of Germans from Russia - Berrien County chapter, Society for German Genealogy in Eastern Europe, and the Federation of Eastern European Family History Societies. Dr. Remus will also be presenting seminars at the annual conference sponsored by the latter two societies in Milwaukee on July 24 and 25 two weeks later.  Registration information on this conference is available at:  WWW.feefhs.org or WWW.sggee.org
