The Secret of Strength by Peter Hoover is another good book.

Thank you Janet. 'The Man from Wengen' is another book for excellent reference.

Peter Hoover is from Canada, I'm sure related somehow, but he does do a lot of research. I live in Michigan but my ancestors migrated to Indiana from Canada. Interesting stuff.

Thank you. I also use 'Wenger, J. C. The Mennonites in Indiana and Michigan. Scottdale, PA: Herald Press, 1961.' but the biggest thing I need to do is actually scan documents showing the Canadian-Michigan relatives' activities- correspondence, deeds, etc. I already have several pictures from the twenties I have posted in my tree, but I also have a few pictures I have not been able to positively identify. I may start with posting it on my profile then copying the link here.....
