Hi Vera et al.
From w'hat I have read and heard our GR folk wanted to go to North America
primarily. However, if there were health problems of some family member, the
whole family usually stayed together and went to South America. The real expert
on this is Erica Neumann in Porto Allegro, Brazil.
Curitibo in the state of Parana, Brazil seemed to attract a lot of Germans
and GRs. As you know, the southern states in Brazil are not as hot as most of
the country. Our people did not like hot places. You might contact Richard
Wilhellm in Curitibo for more information. He is ioriginally from Lincoln,
Nebraska; but he has lived in Curitibo for many years.
Greetings from south Texas.
