Scope and content
This collection contains the correspondence created and photographs collected by Anna Epp Ens in conjunction with a number of Epp family reunions and the publications associated with this family.
In 1975 the descendants of Heinrich Epp (1811-1863) met at the International Peace Gardens and Camp Koinonia south of Boissevain, Manitoba. Out of this gathering grew the request that a book be compiled and published. Anna Epp Ens took up the task supported by a book committee, which led to the publication of the book "The House of Heinrich: The Story of Heinrich Epp..."
The collection also includes files related to publishing a newsletter and organizing subsequent reunions.
In 2010 the original genealogical data published in the book was updated and distributed on a CD ROM using the shareware program, Brother's Keeper, and the original book was scanned and made available in a pdf format. These digital files are also part of this collection.
