Conference Time is Upon Us!

We are eagerly approaching our fourth biennial Immigration History Conference.  What a wonderful Reformation trip to visit us in East Perry County, Missouri October 27-29.  We still have room available for your participation.  Come and join us!  The $250. conference fee covers a wonderful chartered bus fieldtrip, great home cooked meals, world-class historic and genealogical presentations, research mentoring in our state-of-the-art research library, musical entertainment throughout the weekend, and a terrific finale banquet with LCMS Missouri Dist. President Hagan’s keynote address, a harvest feast, and so much more.  If you need help making lodging reservations, let us know.  (573-824-6070)

We are pleased to announce that we will be dedicating the conference to the memory of Dr. Ingerose Paust:  author, historian, and beloved friend of the Perry County Lutheran Historical Society.  Dr. Paust, a German citizen presented at our 2014 Conference and was a wonderful supporter of our mission.

Please note the preliminary syllabus for the conference.  Give us a call if we can answer any additional questions regarding the conference agenda and events.                                Take Care, Carla Jordan  (scroll down for prelim. schedule)
