Remember the Family Tree project from last summer? The purpose was to build a “Family Tree” that would show how the Vereine within the Gauverband fit together – who is Patenverein or Patenkind. It’s turned out to be quite an eye opener of relationships! We received many answers to our online survey and also looked through the Gau-Chronik and Gauzeitung articles. Artist Fritz Sheffler compiled those answers into three different visual displays. Many Gauverband Vereine don’t have a flag, so there is no Patenverein. However, these Vereine are still shown on the designs.

Gauverband Nordamerika has a new Gau Webmaster. Fritz Sheffler has been appointed by 1.Gauvorstand, Tom Vogt. Fritz is a member of B.H.T.V. "Golden Gate" in San Francisco, CA. He was elected Gaubeisitzer at the Delegates Meeting in May 2016. He is an enthusiastic Trachtler. Fritz is also very creative and artistic so I think he will do very well with the website. Congratulations Fritz!
