Melle to New Melle

Visitors from Melle, Germany, came to the area this week for the dedication of a statue in their sister city of New Melle. The Post has two online articles , so I won't repeat the details.

Among the visitors were Wolfgang Dreuse and his wife. Wolfgang has been compiling information for a book about emigrants from Buer (near Melle) and his website is a valuable tool for researchers with family from the area since the church records are not available from the FHL. I was glad to briefly meet Wolfgang on Saturday.
