Hello Yerian researchers:

I'm curious if any of you are in contact with Jim Weaver. He and I exchanged a considerable amount of information prior to the time he printed his book in 1989 and I'd like to contact him.

The reason is that I just came across the indenture for the progenitor of the Yerian line, Matthias Jurian, and have also learned the name of Matthias' hometown in Germany. I know Jim would love to have that information. He speculated in his book that Matthias might have been an indentured servant but couldn't prove it. Now we can!
