Walter R. Ratliff, who has done considerable research into the era and journey of the Mennonites' Great Trek on the Silk Road of Asia, has now produced a book that will be of great interest to those who have roots to ancestors on that original Trek. You may read more about the book and order it from the Ratliff site - HERE.
There are five churches in the Saskatchewan Valley area celebrating their 100th Anniversaries this summer, and one their 50th.
Please see this separate PDF document for contacts to get more information from specific churches.
