The World’s Greatest Family Reunion

Schmidt Family Reunion | July 30-31, 2016 | Fairgrounds, Spencer, Iowa In the 1800s, several Schmidts from the German village of Machtlos braved a voyage across the Atlantic. They settled from Iowa to Washington state to Washington DC. Their descendants now number well into the thousands. They are preparing to break the Guinness World Record for the world’s largest family reunion, and are reuniting at the one place in northwest Iowa big enough to hold all of us: the spacious Clay County Fairgrounds in Spencer, Iowa. RSVP today for the biggest and greatest family reunion in the world on July 30-31, 2016. http://schmidtsreunite.com/

Final Artwork



The Barony of Coldingham

We are immensely impressed with Susi’s work converting two heraldic arms into digitized renderings that now have practical utilizations in the modern world. Susi’s attention to detail and ability to let her own creativity shine through work that otherwise calls for accuracy and detail is very impressive. Susi’s artwork contributes to the history and preservation of heraldic art by helping to ensure the continued and increased use of arms and crests in the electronic age. Thank you Susi. Peter, The Baron of Coldingham and Rebecca, Lady Coldingham. http://coldingham.org/
