I am looking for info on the helmantoler's(hellenthal,helmantel,helmintoller). I was wondering if you have any info. I have 2 children and I want to make a scrapbook for them both that way they will have something about where there family comes from. Could you let me know I would appreciate it so much. Thanks
The chat went OK - 5 or 6 people there. No one from the Anabaptist Group. I thought at least they would be interested. 10 pm MT time is midnight here. The chat started at 9 eastern and lasted for an hour. I didn't get the comment below
Hi - Hopefully you can get to the chat tonight and fill in what I leave out. You obviously know more about the Cloisters than I do. But then the purpose of chats is to get others involved and into networking. I can't seem to locate my two books about Ephrata and most of this comes from the internet. I am just giving the basics.
Hi Michael. You must have left the chatroom just before I got there. I have been having internet problems tonight. I really hope you can get to my chat about the Ephrata Cloisters on Sunday and please feel free to add or correct anything. My interest in them stems from Michael Wohlfarth (Brother Agonius) who was there. He was also one of the Hermits of the Cocalico. Do youknow anything about them?
