Did you ever wonder why this group is called the "Pommerscher Verein Freistadt"? Our backstory appeared in an article on the Wisconsin Public Radio website yesterday, in a feature "Home Away from the Homeland: Why So Many German Immigrants Chose Wisconsin". People ask questions about the state that made them curious, and their questions are answered in a segment called "Whyconsin". The feature often is read on the air, but the schedule is indefinite. You can read the feature here. https://www.wpr.org/why-so-many-german-immigrants-chose-wisconsin-ancestry
Visit Brazil without Leaving Home
Our group was privileged to watch a video produced by a group of fellow
Pomeranians in São Lourenço do Sul – RS, Brazil at our December meeting.
Unlike most of our U.S. settlements, this group has maintained their language.
They have given us permission to post the video here.

Pomeranian Heritage Tour Update
After three years of delays, thirty-five people traveled to Pomerania from May 23 to June 4, 2022. If you want to
see what the group enjoyed, check the Pommerntag Facebook page. Photos and updates were posted daily.
Another tour is tentatively planned for spring 2024.
The route will be very similar to the 2022 trip, and will
include opportunities for separate side trips to ancestral homelands.
