A new article, The Mennonite Cemetery in Gern,” has been added under the Articles: Related Families section. It tells the story of a long, lost Mennonite cemetery near Munich, Germany being discovered after many years of being hidden and mostly unknown. Thanks to Herbert Holly for sending me the article (in German), and to Sem Sutter for making the Google English translation much, much better.
