The 4th biennial immigration history conference is now a piece of our history. It was a wonderful three days of reunions with research patrons, a celebration of art and music, as well as an opportunity for our Historical Society to bring the leadership of the LCMS to the Altenburg region. The Lutheran Heritage Center team joyfully pulled together to create an experience for our participants who came from near and far. The scholarly paper presentations were superb. I learned so much, and we gathered new ideas to expand on for our next conference, October 25-27, 2018–mark your calendars!
