Christiaan,
Thank you for your reply to my message regarding my mother.
I was aware that your grandfather and grandmother spent their winters here in AZ, and that your grandfather played a large part in organizing the Alderfer reunions, in addition to supporting the publishing of "Alderfers Of America". It's too bad that your grandparents and my mother didn't meet again after we relocated to the southwest in 2000.
There is a keen interest in continuing the Alderfer history; however, no one wants to take on such a large, ever-growing project. Joel Alderfer, curator and historian at the Mennonite Heritage Center in Harleysville, PA, has expressed an interest, but at this time in his life he is unable to pick up the reins. I do believe he is our best hope, unless you would be willing to volunteer?
Please contact me at p.casperson@att.net, if so, or if you have any further suggestions as to such a project.
Best wishes,
Priscilla Casperson-King
Tucson, AZ
