September 2017 SGGEE Journal
This month, Dr. Mykhailo Kostiuk, Associate Professor of the Lutsk National Technical University provide an article entitled, “The First Art Exhibition in Germany Devoted to the History of the Volhynian Germans”. This article describes the art exhibit that occurred in Fall 2016 in the city of Detmold, Germany. The art exhibition highlighted Yurii Horbachov, whose work focused on the life and times of the Germans in Volhynia. Changes are occurring to the SGGEE web site and mailing lists as we migrate our data service offerings to a cloud based architecture. Edie Adam and Matt Warner explain these changes. Karla Walters writes about her experiences on the Volhynian Village Adventure Tour she had taken in 2013. And lastly, Bill Tucholke provides an overview of the convention that was held at the end of July in Minneapolis.
