South America in May of 1995 to visit with her daughter-in-law's
parents for a couple of weeks. "It was a very interesting trip
and it made me appreciate Canad and all our conveniences and lifestyle,"

to Darren Dyck in Saskatoon. Darren is a geologist with BHP Diamonds
in Kelowna, BC., where the couple now live. Darren is assisting
in the development of a new diamond mine north east of Yellowknife,

of Professor Emeritus. Hellmut is still teaching two classes that
don't interfere with golfing. Leona works at the library in the
hospital . (House of Peter)
also sent us some notes she recovered from her research several
years ago. "I was interested to read about the Lobsingers in
Schoendorf, Wurt, Germany. Several years ago I came across a reference
to a Caspar Lobsinger of Malterdingen who with a woman (wife?) left
for Siebenburgen on Sept. 4 (or maybe Apr. 9) 1749. He had to pay
a fee for release from serfdom. He was a bookmaker or staple maker.
In Nov. he appeared in Siebenburgen with his daughter (?)."
Leona wonders if maybe Anna (Lobsinger) Beiltz in Germany could
make more sense of this reference.
