[Ger-Poland-Volhynia] Archives in Milwaukee area?

Bill and all,

Indeed there were Volhynian people in Milwaukee in the early 20th century. 
Some of them, from the Deblitz, Freigang and Roller families, are pictured 
in my article on Volhynian Germans in St. Paul in the June, 2008, Journal. 
I have no idea who in these families (or others?) still live in the area, 
except for one--that is Alice (Deblitz) Baumbach, now about 100 years old. 
She was my major source of information about the village of Solodyri where 
she and my father were neighbors.  It would be wonderful if she could 
somehow get to the convention and be recognized.  I'll have to check into 
this and find out if she would be willing and able to be there.  You asked 
about a church.  I do not know the name of the church these people attended, 
but it was surely a German Baptist church.  If I can find out anything more, 
I'll post it.

Subject: [Ger-Poland-Volhynia] Archives in Milwaukee area?

I will be attending the SGGEE/FEEFHS convention in Milwaukee the last 
weekend of July. I have had various Volhynia and Prussian Poland relatives 
live in the area and wondered if there were any archives or local 
genealogical information sources in the Milwaukee area? Also I am not sure 
if there was any church that particularly was associated with folks from 
Vohnlynia in the area. Any help would be appreciated.
