Scope and content
This collection contains the correspondence 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 the photographs that were collected (and published) as well as files related to publishing a newsletter and organizing subsequent reunions, and the update of data distributed on a CD ROM in Brother's Keeper Format in 2010.
