Letters from 19th C Wend Immigrants

An important project is the future publication of Wendish emigrant letters sent from Australia to Lusatia during the nineteenth century.

The first of these letters were obtained by Kevin Zwar through the efforts of Pastor Siegfried Albert in Saxony. Some were discovered by George Nielsen and Trudla Malinkowa during their research in Germany. These letters have been translated into English by a number of people in Australia, including Dr Thomas Darragh who has contributed two examples for us to publish.
